rustyhook is on a distinguished road
Default Scott E2 804-4

Scott is discontinuing these rods. There are some pretty good prices on these rods at local fly shops. I havent cast one yet, but I was wondering if any of you had any experience with this 4 wt and how it might compare with other 4 wts out there...I cant seem to find much mention of this rod on the boards. Thanks

Hi,I've got several Scotts,I wanted to buy an E21004 but didn't find one so I finally bought a 955-4.All I can say it's a nice rod,very well made,it's a fast action rod with great power when you have to cast farther or when it's windy,if you use it well it'll enable you to send your fly with a great precision moreover it can hold fish without problem.But...I think it's not an easy rod...I mean it's not as easy to use as a medium fast one like the A2...you can find even cheaper and will be more fishable for you if you're an average caster.
Hope it can help...although it's not about the 804

Good to hear that about the 955-4 E2, I'd considered that for my next trout rod.

Good luck and welcome Rusty.
