    I’ve not seen any notable change in action on a fly rod but my favourite PE 8 spin stick that I’ve used on big GTs over the years has definitely slowed down in action. I will say though that that particular rod has been to hell and back and is still a competent piece of kit.

    Regards,


    Trevor

    I'm on the same page as Trevor with my 1979 Orvis Far & Fine, I have fished with that rod every single year since 1979...…. It has more hours of casting and more fish of all sizes and I think it works as well as when it was new. If it has changed at all the difference came over such a long period of years I never noticed. The Far & Fine was a high price rod at $370.00 back then.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Of course they do. Mine usually wear out shortly after New models are introduced.��
