Clifford: but they are very good communist entrepreneurs and neo-captialists

No doubt about that. Seems like its not really playing fair though, what with $2/hr wages and the gov't covering healthcare.

and lets not forget no EPA regs regarding solvent eg acetone or methe/chloride disposal or workman comp premiums that aside...

How to get "a deal on a USA fly rod"?? close outs and demos IMHO....since I am 85% salt and 15% smallies all of my rods are salt except my old Wes Jordan 7 wt two piece,vintage 1966 for $167.00. The rest are 8 through 12 Sage Winston blanks RPLX TCR XTR I can cast most fly rods but some are better given my short stroke due to rotator cuff issues; thus in me dotage I do not need to try out the "bargin" However, after casting my 10 wt TCR then picking up the bamboo I'll have a beer between my back cast and forward cast...

"The bargain" just got a close out/demo 8wt three piece Diamondback Stu Apte Signature from the Cortland store for $115.00...(previously made an 8 wt on a Diamondback Aeroflex blank liked it then gave it to my daughter)took it out on my parking lot... it's 50 today in Indiana...my Tropic Plus was real stiff...but the rod worked well for my short stroke and varying the power of the front haul just made the loop smaller and if I backed off the front haul I got a tailing loop but put the power back in just the haul and I was carrying 50 feet shooting 10 with ease into 10 kts...it was an easy powerful into the wind cast....it's a bargin at 115 and I still don't fish Mao or Park.

But Clifford...
Diamondback from Vermont is close to Mao afterall Bernie Sanders is the first socialist elected to the US Senate and his mentor is that great Hoosier socialist Gene Debs..

The traditionals are fine rods. Smooth medium actions. I fish a five weight and they are great rods at a fantastic price point. Go throw one and see what you think.
