Can't find a single mention of testing rods on the water in any of your 'reviews' on the UK Forum, by the way.

Anyway, not bad for your first post here... not sure you'll make any 'American friends' if you keep this up.

If you have any constructive comments let's hear them, otherwise feel free to move on...

FWIW. I have the 8'6" and 8'0" 4wt BIIt's (and know how they perform on the lawn and with a fish on the end)... I hope that meets with your approval!!!
Ah come on now Kevin, don't have the same opportunity? i'm from the netherlands and don't have any rivers i say i have a slight disadvantage..

Don't blame me for pointing out the obvious. But standing outside casting a rod that doesn't excel in casting but fishing and write a review about it without actually comparing the two on water just doesn't make sense..

Now you are just trying to make me look bad Kevin.. My tapatalk has been going bonkers like everyones who upgraded.. I landed on the us forum while i started it back up..
Everyone who actually takes a rod out fishing and comes to learn a rod is superior in his knowledge opposed to someone that just walks outside test cast on grass with one line and spills his guts on the web how bad a rod is.. You also had a circa for one day a hardy sintrix a WT 9 ft 5 etc etc.. You in all your wisdom said the rods are bad and didn't perform well.. To quote someone else maybe you should take up golf and move on..

But dont worry Kevin i won't post on the american site or the uk platform for that matter..

Well, just a couple of things Jerry.

First - you work in a fly fishing shop... so it's disingenuous to claim you don't get to try a lot of rods.

Second. Trying to make you look bad? No Jerry, the other way around... it was your sneering remarks that made me look a fool. Take this as another sarcastic example: "To quote someone else maybe you should take up golf and move on..".

As for the comments about the rods I've tried - I NEVER said a rod was bad or performed badly (just that I didn't like them) and in fact I've ended up with two BIIt's. And I've been playing 'catch-up' because it's only my first serious year of fly fishing, but I've done a lot of fishing this year and I think I've learned one thing, which is, what I like and why I like it. If I'd ended up with a couple of broomsticks I could understand the criticism.

You should remember that the purpose of these forums is for people to exchange views in an environment where they won't face scathing comments from so-called 'experts', when they say something that's not to their liking.

Anyway, I've been enjoying this Forum until now, so I'd appreciate it if we could leave it there and move on.
