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.

All dialed in, a 2 weight is a ton of fun! Thanks for sharing your fun.
Now, about a one or two pound bass ought to be Nirvana on steroids...

Thanks for the replies, yes I cannot wait to get into bigger fish, this rod is definitely a different experience.

Cabela's has some fiberglass rods on sale for $64.99. I don't know anything about them though.

Those are the same rods, very worth the price.

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.
