Re: G.Loomis to Sage?

Well, since I first posted this I have changed from thinking of Sage, to Scott or Winston.

Sage rods are simply too stiff for me.

As for Loomis, I am moving on. It is hard for me to support a...

Re: New Winston.....

Yeah, that is a far cry from the "Green" but I recon its because it isn't an $800 rod. Only other Winston that I know of to be anything other than green was the Vapor.

Abel vs. Hatch Debate

I know in the past there have comparisons and contrasts between these two reels, with Nautilus often thrown into the mix as well.

Re: Scott vs. Winston

Factoring in finish, quality, feel, fishability, etc., do you favor one company as a whole, over the other?

I hear warranty ducks from both.

Re: The Shimano Beancounters Just Wrecked Loomis

I believe cost of the rods and warranty are the main issue.

I'll pay the high price for a good warranty, for good craftsmanship, for quality components, to deal with folks who know what their...

Re: The Shimano Beancounters Just Wrecked Loomis

Last straw for me as well.

That LP is a sweet series, but not for a non-existant warranty!

Should have seen the writing on the wall; warranty kept going down hill, reps are all conventional...

Re: For SCOTT ROD Fans...

From what I hear.....

It is more about adding more models to current line ups than it is about introducing a new series.

Although, I think it is time for a G2 and S4s replacement.
