Went to Cablea's last night to replace the Matrix rod I broke at Wyomissing last week. I had a PT series 6' 4wt that I loved and sold to WG Miller after 3 years of service. I had a 7' 3wt at one time and loved that. Anytime I ever broke one they replaced it, no questions asked.

Anyway, I went to buy either a 6'6" 2wt or the 7' 3wt PT+. Both are out of stock everywhere and Cabela's does not know when they are coming in. The manufacture will not tell them anything.
So I asked about the LST series in a 6'6" 4wt. The salesman did not recommend it. He said the LST rods are coming back left and right broken. He thinks there is something wrong in the manufacture process and that is way they are breaking. He also thinks that is why they are not getting the PT+ series in also. They've been on back ordered for over 2 months.

I have a trip coming up to Lake Placid in 2 weeks and need a rod. Looking at something in the 6'6" to 7' 3" - 2wt-4wt 2 piece range and having a hell of a time staying in my price range. I don't like the options in the Bass Pro line either.

The 3wt 7'6" three forks rod has quite a fan club on usenet.

I just ordered a 9' 8 wt L-tech. I'm going to start fishing the lower Oswayo for pike and musky and thought I could use it for steelie's and carp as well. The L-tech was on sale for $160 and with a couple other rebates I ended up getting it for $100 shipped. Every review I read on it says it's one of the best quality fly rods Cabela's has sold to date. I can't wait to get it and try it. I'll post again to let you know how it works out.

Anybody own an L-tech?

Spectorfly,

Check out the St. Croix Imperial line. Solid rods for a pretty reasonable price.

Gomes,

I just took a look. Nice price. they have a 7'6" 4wt 2 piece. Too long and too heavy. I think I want a 3wt. They also have a 7' 3wt 4 piece. Too many pieces. I'm picky. Well not really. I just know what I want. 2, maybe 3 piece rod in those weights and sizes.

Spectorfly,

Temple Fork Signature Series 3 weight in 7'-6" 2 piece (about $110). Also, the TF #3 weight Professional Series is a nice rod but it is 4 piece ($150).

Got the 8wt. Cabela's L-Tech on Saturday and did some yard casting on Sunday. This thing is pretty nice and I can't wait to try it on the water. With the fast action I had 60 feet of line going with no problem at all. Smooth as silk. Hopefully I'll tie into one of those water wolves soon and let you know how it fights.

I'm picking up the Temple Fork 7'6" 3wt. I went to Bass Pro and checked it out since the Cabela's 7'3wt PT+ were on intergalactic backorder.
I really liked the rod. It is a mod/fast action, full flex rod. (with a lifetime warranty.

Spector, not sure if you've picked this up or are dead set on it, but FishUSA has Diamondglass rods @ 20% off right now in the sizes you're looking at.

For someone on a budget, this deal is amazing!

Traditional II

$40 for a 4 piece rod! That's insane. A sweet deal for sure, and the rods look and feel like high end stuff.

wow, I paid 60 for mine on sale last year. I like it a lot. But it is a fast rod. Be sure you want a fast action rod first.
