Re: St Croix Avid vs Ultra - Worth the $100 Premium?
Like most everything you get what you pay for.
I have fly fished all my life & when buying equipment I have
always made the choice to spend a little more to get what
I know will be worth the extra $$$. ( All of my rods (4) come
with the wonderful lifetime warranty, break one for some
reason get a new rod. ) You will also notice that the farther
up the $ scale you go they do get better, naturally.
Now don't get me wrong, if you don't want to spend, or
cannot, don't. In my book a general rule to follow is :
"The rod, reel & line make the unit." If you buy good items
in each of those catergories you will not go wrong.
Fly fishing the "Quiet Sport", enjoy,
