Default Re: Sharkskin

Reports from a crew of west coast guides I know are leaving me hesitant (and I only pay wholesale)... the second generation line held up better than the first (which wasn't so hot) but there is still signs of unusual rod/guide wear on heavier rigs.

I also have to agree with one of Mojo's earlier comments, the review read like a infomercial... maybe just the authors style of writing, but it was way to happy go lucky to get credible traction with me. The enthusiasm was just way over the top, like a 16 yr. old boy who just saw his first porn flick. JMO, TIOLI, YMMV
... But a lifelong journey.

I choose fly rods the same way I do women, motorcycles, and cowboy boots...
go with what ever feels good, and keep on hand as many as I can afford
