I'm the rep for the MW and I love the rod. It is great for indicator nymphing, Czech nymphing, and mending, it roll casts like a dream. It is certainly one of our best rods regardless of price. But instead of taking my word for it, call Ronnie "Grumpy" Howard at Cumberland Transit in Nashville TN. (615) 321-4069. He is one of the best known guides on the Caney Fork tail-water. He runs the rod and likes it better then same model in the Orvis Helios. And it has become a favorite of his customers.

Thanks for your reply...that's funny because you told me it was a good rod for indicator or Czech nymphing ...the two techniques I hate and never practise....but...you added it roll cats like a dream....and it convinced me to buy one.It's a real cheap rod so I think I won't be disappointed!I'm looking for a 10' whose action is close to the one of a Scott a2 which doesn't exist in this size,I know there's a E2 1004 but I think it won't do .I only use my E2 955 when there's a high wind and it's far faster than the G and the A 2.So thanks rep for your advice...What's MW?

I have been looking for a 10' 3 or 4 wt. for European Nymphing techniques. I just went to the Cortland website and can't find a 10' 4 wt. anywhere. Can either of you guys post a link please?

I have used the 10' 4wt. and it is a great rod. This rod casts like a cannon. I was using size 22 midges and this rod could have thrown them 60 to 70 feet no problem.

Great nymph rod!!!!!


The only place I have to get one is from ebay in the UK at about $90 US funds.

Unfortunatly, We are terrible at updating our site (not my department). But if you go to the site and request a catalog they'll send it right out.

I got my rod last week...I usually fish Scott but this rod wasn't expensive and I needed a 10'#4 so I bought one.I must say I don't regret my purchase.Nice olive green blank with burgundy windings,wooden reel seat(a bit too long I think) I've tested it on dry and light nymph with a SA ultra4 wf4f.It's a very pleasant medium fast rod,light enough for a 10',excellent for roll casting,very good for what I call semi spread out cast,useful to mend and keep the line over the stream,I unhooked a few fish as I started using it but then there was no problem.The tip enables you to use thin tippets,I caught some big chubs over 45 cm and could hold them rather well,it might be more difficult for trout of the same size.Every time I had to cast a little farther ,it seemed powerful enough.So it's no doubt a great rod for the price!
Sorry,if my explanations are sometimes a little muddled but I'm french...
