Default Scott A3 Series

Hey everybody.

I just saw the new scott A3 series fly rods on the website of the nearest fly shop to me and i thought they looked pretty nice.

Does anybody have any experience with this new series and if so are they worth looking into.

Im going to hopefully go cast one next week and if it feels nice save up for one. its the right price for me so i can save up and get a nice reel and maybe some shark skin line.

I do not a have an A3 but i do have a V2 and i LOVE IT! Favorite rod i have ever purchased. I have casted an A3 and it is a very nice rod. Extremely good balance and shooting ability. Scott is a great company. I purchased the V2 right after Christmas and it has been my primary rod since. What weight are you looking at?

Hi I've got an A2 905 4p and it's a great rod they're now on sale if you can find one jump on it!I use it with a 4 wt line like with my G 905and G2 905....I think Scott should offer me a rod for I've been recommending them for years....

Not gonna happen, been trying that for years myself.

Scott makes great stuff, and an A3 5wt should be a great tool for many years.

I have an A2 804-4 that I got for a deep discount after the A3s came out. It has been a great rod for me and I fish it more than any other rod I own. Not sure what exact changes Scott made with the A3, but if it is an improvement it should be a great rod. Based on my experience with the A2 I am interested in a G2 884-4. How does the action on the G2 compare to the A2?

I had the opportunity to lawn-cast one along with the rest of Scott's lineup a few weeks ago. For me, the A3 and S4 were my favorites, and the difference between the way those two felt was negligible, and certainly not enough to justify the extra cash for the S4. So a 6wt A3 is in my future, without question. It's a fantastic rod!
