I am jealous I want one of these so badly. I have the 376-4 and it is such a great rod to fish with. If only I weren't broke due to my new fly tying habit I would have grabbed one when they went on closeout

Start socking away some funds. These don't seem to be moving as fast as the Z Axis. Looks like there are plenty of them still available.

I'm a fan of two piece rods so when a new 5wt Z-axis two piece came up on ebay I jumped on it, even though I would have preferred a six weight. Soon after that I discovered the same seller had quite a stock of Z-axis and XP rods all new in tubes, including 9' 6wt Z-axis two piece rods not advertized on ebay. Anyone still looking for a Z pm me and I'll give you a link.

Just added a Sage 4711LL Graphite 3 for just $300! Can't wait for NEXT SUMMER! Probably going to test it against my Scott 3 weights and sell whichever is the least fun.

I have 7, for the most part only use 2 of them. Scott G904/4, Scott S4 906/4, G. Loomis 7 1/2' IM6 4wt, Scott G703/3, Scott G906/BT, ganddads Fenwick fiberglass rod, Hardy that's in storage I forget the details but very light wt rod.

As you can see I'm a Scott guy.
