Default Re: Thinking about adding a rod to my trout fishing quiver.

As great as the Scott G series is, I doubt that a 6 wt G would offer you much more in terms of handling heavy payloads and cutting through the wind then your 5 wt axis. When you jump up to 6 wt you may find that you prefer a med-fast to fast action rod over a med/mod. While the Scott S4 is a great rod, it may feel to stiff compared to the deeper bending rods you are use to. If you can handle a z-axis but want something slower I would look at a Sage VXP or Response, Scott A4, St Croix Legend Elite, G Loomis GLX Streamdance, or Beulah Platinum.
