Diamondback Rod Company
 
Is the Diamondback fly rod company out of business? It seems like they have recent models and articles on their rods, but I can't find a website for them.

Check the Cortland website...

All I could find for a Cortland website was a cortlandlines.com and that was pretty bootleg and had no reference to Diamondbacks.

It's under construction, but if you look at the catalog, it has Diamondback Rods in there...

So they are still in business and still making Diamondback rods correct? Any thoughts or opinions on them?

They are making switch rods at the least and I have heard they are pretty darn nice, but can't say from personal experience...

If you have any questions, I would email Artie Loomis @ Cortland

ALOOMIS@cortlandline.com

I have a couple rods from the original Stowe, Vt. store and factory before Cortland bought them. As I understand it, the Americana and Classic Trout tapers are still the same. I love mine. On another note, I've dealt with Cortland directly and many people I know have also- service is world class. I'm sure any Diamondback will be well backed. They've got a great discount store.:)

I have two Diamondback Backwater rods. Been looking for a UL 2wt rod and saw that Diamondback make one. Was wondering how it might be. Thanks for the info.
