    Hey guys I don't have a dog in the Moonshine discussion and am still too new to the rest of the debate, though I bought second hand high end rods and spent the rest on lessons. (just not sure if they did any good yet, lol) I came across this article about Moonshine rods so thought that I would link it here as it might provide some info to the discussion here. Enjoy.

    I would love to try a Moonshine some time but since I gave not... I use an Echo switch rod and I'm happy with it. Check out Echo rods for sure--great values in the low-to-mid price range.

    Honestly, if I ever got a chance to cast a Moonshine rod I would jump at it as they are at a great price point and aesthetically pleasing in their design. It even looks like they have a bunch of dealers around the country one of which is about an hour from me... All of that said, I really do not need another rod, lol. I have one new rod, a Beulah spey and otherwise I've been super lucky as a newbie to get into this sport by picking up second hand Winston and Thomas and Thomas rods, mostly from guys who have decided to retire from flyfishing for health reasons.

    I have both, and believe the fenwick aetos is a better rod.
