My McFarland 5wt. E-glass. One of many glass I own. I still love my Winstons and F&F 5wt. and One Ounce 4wt. Graphite.

Another glass rod I love is this Steffan Brothers 4wt. 7'6". Built by Mark Steffan. Not the best looking rod, but a hell of a performer.

And just picked this up this morning. 6'6" Cabelas CGR (glass) 3wt. I ordered it last week. $75 online for all weights. I'll see how it fishes tomorrow.

Nice rods Mojo, I still believe S-glass and E-glass are the best of both worlds. It's funny because 90% of my conventional rods are some form of glass but 90% of my flyrods are graphite. I have to get my hands on a few glass blanks.

Here are my 3 rods. Nothing fancy (7'6" 4wt, 9' 5wt, 9' 7wt). Threw in my jacket to brighten it up a bit. I'd like to pickup a custom SAGE full flex rod someday. Maybe I'll order that one with a little more color.

Did I ever mention that I hate all of you? Those are some seriously amazing fly rods and pictures. If I can find my camera I'll post a pic of the custom build I got done on an affinity MX blank.
