That's the rod I've been eyeballing, especially since they're made within an hour of me. If I put one on layaway now I may be able to pay it off by this time next year.
Know anyone that has a used one they're looking to part with?

IMHO.. St.Croix Imperial is a decent rod for the price, but rated as a fast action rod. The Orvis rod has the full flex , slow action that you might be looking for and not a bad price. The Scott, well if you are prepared to lay out that much cash, have a custom glass built for you rather than buying a factory mass production one. Lots of good builders in the USA. If you have the time, do a little research on the Kabuto, Epic or Steffen blanks. Just my opinion.:D

I have the Imperial 6' 2 wt rod and like it a lot. Of the three 2 wts I own, it's the one I use the most. (The others are an 8' Sage ZXL and a 7' 6" St Croix Legend Ultra.)

It may be called 'fast action', but 'fast action' in a 2 wt is different from a heavier rod.

In fact, one of the things I have to be careful about is putting enough 'oomph' into a hook set. The rod is so light and flexible that it bends a lot on setting the hook.

I have a friend that has a 6' 3wt. St Croix Avid which is a "slower" rod than the Imperial.....and I'm pretty sure it is made in the USA..... with case, well care for, price ...probably around 100.00 - 125.00.....
if interested let me know and I'll put you in touch with him...... he bought the rod new a couple of years ago.......
