the most amazing caster of a fly line that i have ever personally fished
with, the famous "duc du chocolat", the man that made atlanta "hotlanta",
fishes scotts. there can be no better endorsement.

wayno (however, some brigands "swear up and down" by thomas & thomas rods)

Most rod companies have a line of fast rods and of medium action. they have
at least one top of the line and one entry level. You really should cast
enough rods to know where you want to be. then evaluate the rods in that
category. I am not too impresed with Scott's new top of the line S-3. I
have the 4 wt and it is heavy, and worse is that it is top heavy; much of
the weight feels like it is in the tip. However this may not be the case
for someone else who uses a heavier reel. Their other lines, the SAS which
is being replaced, and the G- series have a huge following.
