    I seen this (and his other fiberglass casting vids) as well. Beautiful casting. Definitely in the mood for a new bigger water glass rod!

    $600 and a 9 month wait for a fiberglass flyrod? Really?

    It's called a "waiting period".

    Or you can buy a blank and build your own for about $350

    I will just stick with the Scott glass rod, cheaper and no wait period. Still hand made.

    I've never cast one, I'm sure it's a great piece of glass but I would try to get my hands on one before I actually purchased it. The casting looks great for sure but I also think I'm watching someone who is VERY familiar with the rod he's holding. His timing is much slower that it would be if he was using a graphite. His backcast, his haul, and his forward cast are VERY consistant. If you haven't spent much time fishing a glass rod be prepared for an adjustment period. I'm not trying to sway anyone away from a glass rod but your entire cast must change when going from graphite to fiberglass and vise versa.

    Someone stop this train for a second. When did fiberglass rods pick up a $600+ price tag?
