New Rod/Reel

  1. I finally got to give the new rod/reel a go today on my lunch break. Its a Scott A4- 10' 7wt with a sage 2280 reel and scientific anglers steelhead taper line. It roll casts like a champ and launches my heavy streamers upwards of 400 feet (rough estimate).

    I could not be happier with Santa this year ( my wife claims it was her idea).

  2. Sweet rig!
  3. 400 feet? A football field plus?
  4. Rough estimate give or take a few hundred % :)

  6. Keep practicing on that distance, You'll be up with the rest of us in no time.:D
    Any new additions to the family yet?
    Oh Yeah, nice setup!

  7. No new additions yet. My wife refuses to have the baby around christmas (we will see how that works out). any day now!
  8. Some people like to brag.
  9. World record for a single hand cast is 270 feet. Maybe you should recheck your distances.

  10. I estimated him shooting the line 340 ft. He tends to brag. He beat me my a couple meters, i was using old line and a #20 bug.

  11. Seth, I got the humor in it anyway. Better add a smilie for definition.
  12. Sweet! It'll cast 450+ once you remove the shrink wrap from the cork.

  13. Thanks! I guess that would have been a good idea ...
  14. I got to cast a friends A4 10' 4wt. Nice rod, good feel in the tip.
  15. No need on the smiley face, anyone who missed the part about the rough estimate needs to work on their inferential reading techniques. Nice set up, but how was the catching?

  16. But didn't these rods fare poorly in the Yellowstone Angler shootout?
  17. And is that the holy bible of fly rods? :rolleyes:
  18. Be careful there, he does rough estimations on the number he catches and the size of them :p:p
  19. I heard something about swing weight and the rod not being ultra fast. A fast rod is a good rod. Duh!
    I make the jokes.
