  1. Default Scott G2 - Opinion?

    Hi-

    I'm considering picking up a Scott G2 fly rod (can't seem to find the discontinued G anywhere these days). Anyway, if you have had experience with the G2, what is your opinion of this rod? I'm really considering the 8'4", 5-weight for small to medium sized streams and rivers in the east.

    Is it comparable to the old Scott G action? What is the rod's flex like? Does it flex deeply into the rod or at the tip?

    Thanks for any help!

    Dont know anything about Scott rods, dont even know anyone that fishes with 'em, but I was looking on some sites for winter specials and seen a Scott S3, 8'6'' 5wt advertised as a fast action rod, normaly sells for 549 but marked down to 279. its at www.mrfc.com, at that deal I may have to get one and check out a scott rod.
    Good Luck

    The G2 has an action very similar to the old G's. They are just slightly faster (crisper?) and are a bit lighter rod. They have the same unsanded look and will fish almost exactly the same as the old G series rods.

    The S3 rods were too stiff and are being replaced by a series that is much more user friendly.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    How is the flex on the G2? Fairly deep or near the tip (with a fish on)?

    Thanks,

    id rate the G2 series as a medium action, and flexes well

    My father in law enjoys his. I haven't heard him complain about it.

    Depends on the fish.

    And the fish fighter.

    Seriously though, its a medium action rod, and will flex pretty deeply under load.

    You can find the G's here:

    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
    What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?

    I have had one for 2 years now. In my opinion this is the best rod I have ever fished dries with. 4wt 8'6" g2 with Hatch 3plus reel. Definitely not on the cheap side, but one smooth rod!
