Glad you went with the SA line. Customer service speaks volumes to me about a company. Perhaps RIO (Farbank) is getting to big for their britches, but then again, may be this is an isolated incident.
Could you provide a bit more feedback on the Mastery Trout, along with any leader or tippet experiences you may have with SA product?
