Re: Is it really worth it ?
I have a number of rods in that price range (fly and others) and I can say without a doubt it's worth it. It's not snobbery or showing off it's about performance and the enjoyment of fishing with quality gear. Can I fish with lesser price tag equipment, yes, and I have. But if I can afford to buy the best I do.
