Re: Abel reel choice

One thing that is for sure, you will enjoy your reel. Actually I should say reels as you will more than likely buy another one.

Re: New 8wt: Scott Tidal vs Sage Motive vs Winston Nexus

Have you tried the Short Stix yet? Been hearing good things that have me curious.

Re: New 8wt: Scott Tidal vs Sage Motive vs Winston Nexus

I wouldn't dare compare my HP to other rods, I know better than that. As far as other brands go, I would love to have a NRX. I had a hard time putting one down a while back, I just kept wanting to...

Re: New 8wt: Scott Tidal vs Sage Motive vs Winston Nexus

Funny, I don't think my 8wt could easily confused with a 9wt. It is a sweetheart, not too fast at all. It's the rod I grab when I know I am going to be casting a lot. It has a really nice pace and...

Re: Favorite 7 weight & line

I have a Scott HP 7wt. It's a fantastic bass rod. I used it for several years on redfish when I lived in Corpus. Didn't really understand it at the time but I got a smoking deal on it when Scott...

Re: 2015 Yellowstone Angler 5-Weight Shoot-Out

Despite the well thought out and hopefully good intentioned review, when it comes time for me buying a new 5wt, it will be a Scott G2 8'8". I guess in the end if you have been around long enough, you...

Re: New 8wt: Scott Tidal vs Sage Motive vs Winston Nexus

I personally have no experience with any of those rods but I do have a Scott S4s 8wt that I wouldn't trade for anything. If you were to force me to sum up the Scott vs Sage question I'd say Sage...

Re: What is your choice drink for fly fishing?

I only drink water while I'm fishing but after I enjoy a couple fingers of a nice rum.

Re: Oh boy Abel

I love these threads, they never seem to get old. In fact, probably the only thing that will outlast my Abel nippers.

Re: Bauer RX

I LOVE my Rogue. The only thing Bauer is lacking on is their advertising. I sure hope they sell plenty of RX's. They look like an heavier duty Rogue, not that it needs to be beefed up any. Their...

Re: Winter Jacket Color

Screw all of that, get something that looks good and makes you stand out among the others in the parking lot lacing up their rods. I want a nice red one just because I look good in red.

Re: Lamson Waterworks as a whole?

You should really be looking into Bauer. I love my Rouge. I would love to own a CFX, those are in the Lamson Litespeed price point and they are a much better reel. Much better design and a whole lot...

Re: Nautilus (as a whole)?

I had a 8/9NV for a while and really wanted to like it. I just didn't like the drag adjustment. Mine was almost completely binary. The drag was either on or off, never just right. I also never really...

Re: Nautilus NV 5/6 Deal

I have ordered a couple of reels from Stillwater, no problems at all. In fact, their customer service is very good.

Re: Exceeded Expectations - Bauer Rogue 2

They really are nice aren't they? I hate to see that they aren't being made anymore. The RX is replacing them. I wished I could afford to stock up on some more.

Re: Bauer Rogue Reels - Opinions/Reviews

I love my Rogue 4, in fact it is probably my favorite reel. The drag is strong and smooth. The finish is fantastic. It's a shame they aren't more popular. There are no downsides, just a sexy good...

Re: Abel's forthcoming Sealed Drag Reel

I have one hobby, and fly fishing isn't it. I consider fishing more of a lifestyle slash relaxation thing. The money I have spent on gear isn't wasted at all, it provides returns every time I use it...

Re: Abel's forthcoming Sealed Drag Reel

Re: Abel's forthcoming Sealed Drag Reel

If I want an Abel fresh water reel, I'd buy a Creek or another TR. I have dunker my TR many times, no need for a sealed reel there.

Re: Abel vs. Hatch Debate

Don't let the fancy fish finish tempt you. Everyone knows the sexiest Abel's are dressed in black. Seriously though, Abel has without question the best polished black anodized reels on the market. I...

Re: Testing out a New Fly to Buy

Every "fly shop" I have ever been in will let you lawn cast all the rods you want. A few will stick one in your hand to take outside with little to no encouragement. Or maybe they just read me as a...

Re: For SCOTT ROD Fans...

Blaspheme. Nothing can replace my S4s's. I guess on the plus side, I now have 2 more "classic" rods.
