Have seen their ads and they have a 30 day no questions asked return period I believe, so if you can go use the set up enough to get a good impression on it, and all the reviews I've read on 'em are good, but no 1st hand experience with 'em.

Looks nice, reels look very similar to every other low/mid point reel made in Asia such as an Allen, some Hardys, White River, Cabela's etc. Not saying this is a bad thing but after a while it's kind of funny that everyone is basically selling nearly the exact same product likely made in the same factory only with their own branding on it.

are they like Albright, with their stuff on "sale" all the time?

That A8 10' 4wt looks interesting :)

A rose by any other name……..as it turns out, might not smell as sweet.

An old American fly rod company might have a pretty good case to make about some of what I read on that website and the product lines.
Scott fly rods started the A series of rods back with the SAS ( Scott Alpha Series ). The second generation of those rods the A2 ( Alpha 2 ) was followed by the A3 series and today, the A4 series. ARC is also a long standing Scott rod technology designation.

You know the old saying. " If you can't beat 'em, copy 'em. ";)
