What kind of fishing do you plan on doing with it? Why do you need a 10 ft rod?

Why use a 9 foot when I can use a 10?

Just something to try out... recommend by someone.. he's been using them for quite a while, and he's a Montana expert.. known by almost everyone here

His recommendation alone, is worth trying it, better line control, more flex on the tip

He said something yesterday I thought was very funny.. we used to call it nymphing, now they call it Czech nymphing.. lol

Dave,
If you are willing to consider a 10' 4wt, I know just where to find a Scott A4 (new in wrapper) at a low price

Have a look at the Marryat Tactical 10ft 3# its a sweet tool if you can get it there.

I use my Scott S4 10ft 4# a lot and thats great at dries as well as nymphing.

Echo makes a 3wt 10' called the Shadow PE... Pete Erickson (Fly Fishing TeamUSA) signature model. I've seen them on sale at Cabelas for just over 2 Benjamins.

I have a Grey's Streamflex 10' 4 weight. They make a 3 weight. It might be my favorite rod to fish right now.
