Which pulls it out of a three way tie for 13th. place and moves it up to 10th. place ( the Scott A4 makes the top 10 ! ) , dropping the Sage One to 11th. place !

Now that really would be news!

I noticed that about the Scott A4 when I read the shootout.

Once he realizes the error, will Anderson have the integrity to give the cheapest Scott 10th place and put it ahead of the Sage One?

Reality is that the point system is a farce to give an illusion of objectivity. These shootouts are simply opinions of a few casters. It gives readers somewhat of a reference, but I wouldn't judge any rod simply based on an opinion.

Fly rod "performance" in virtually unquantifiable. It isn't like a car test where an experienced driver can flog it around a race track for lap times.
