Video of my trial run with this rod. I was anxious to try it out but with a North wind and cold front the fish were very skittish and biting short. Managed a few little ones and really enjoyed the rod.
Just checked out cabelas online. There are some new/old players in the glass market. Fenwick has a new glass rod, as well as TFO. Butterstick has been out for a bit, but that gives you 5 options (cabelas has 2 different models with different actions)...just from cabelas. Glass is on the rise.
