Default Old Scott G Action

Hi-

I have an opportunity to purchase an old Scott G fly rod and was wondering what the action is like on this model? I won't have the chance to cast it before purchase so any info. would be appreciated. Specifically, is it a progressive action rod? Does it have a good "feel"?

Thanks for any help!

I don't know what you mean by "progressive" action, but it is definately a medium action. I casted one that my instructor had and it felt awesome. It made my St. Croix Imperial feel like a telephone pole.

Thanks! I think by progressive I mean slow to medium action...I'm not so much interested in distance casting but more so in the feel of a fish on the rod...

For a technical trout rod it is one of the best out there. I actually like the G2's a bit better cuz they're slightly faster and a bit lighter, but I wouldn't pass up a great deal on an old one.

Keep in mind that it will look a bit weird. Its an unfinished graphite blank with sorta homemade looking graphics on it. If you like a more rustic/retro look, you'll dig it.

I have both G and G2 (I am testing 5 Scotts this winter season) Casting both is a dream. The G is exactly what you are looking for. It wasn't the rod for me.

I nymph more than top water and found I snag hooked 2/3rds the fish with my G.

For small light little top water presentations you will love the G. My style and hook setting has me taking pic's and planning on listing my G back on EBAY this spring.

Good luck..

Critter..

PS... I have become a total fan of Scott and what they do. I am either keeping my G2 or SCS currently. I have a few others that might win out.
