Default Re: Scott Rods Reviews?

Scott rods are pretty good rods made in Montrose, CO. If you were to buy any of their rods though, I would go and test cast them in a couple weights up and down from the line weight you're looking for.

I have a Scott G2 8'8" 4wt and it is one of my favorite rods. It produces a nice crisp, tight, and medium/slow action that I like in a dry fly rod. It is slow, but she has some cojones.

On the flip side, I had a S4 9' 5wt. that I hated. I bought it sight unseen and forced myself to fish it for a year. It was very dumb feeling and too fast even for someone like me. It felt more like a six or seven weight to me. I have since sold it. The S4 9' 4wt. is amazing though. A true light weight 4 wt. that dances in the hands of a competent caster.

I broke my 5wt S4 the year I had it and it took almost 3 months to get back so their warranty service seems a little slow. YMMV
