I see the Cabela's glass rods have an almost John Deere farm tractor green look to them. I'd like to see what they have in a little bit longer heavier rod.

I already have 3 lightweight rods ranging from 7' to 8' feet in length.

And then I got this 9' #7, which is almost too much rod for anything but Big Bubba Bass.

If they have something like a 8.5 ft. #5 I'd be all over it. Or even a 9 footer. That will fill in the big gap between my 4 and 7 weight.

Oddly, I was wondering why no one offers long, light glass rods. I'd be tickled iwth an 8'6"+ 3wt. :)

you can get up to 8'9" in a 3 wt from mike mcfarland. rods are pricy, but blanks aren't too bad.
I'm sure other builders offer similar models.

I believe the Diamondback "Glass" are in the $300 range. Just because a flyrod is made with fiberglass does'nt make it cheap. These rods are not your daddy's fiberglass rods. I have the old "Diamondglass" 7'6" 2pc. 3 weight. I love it. Very smooth! I hope the new ones are as good. Anybody have any idea on the Cabela's glass rod price?

No but I have a sneaky suspicion that Cortland may be behind those blanks given Cortlands propensity to supply fly lines, etc under the Cabelas brand.

They sent the new catalogue to me, the glass rods aren't in there, but Winston's has a pretty big deal made about it.

Also, the LST has been augmented by an LSI line, which seems to come across as even faster. Meh.

I see the LST switch rods are back, though.

If you check out the 50% off pricing of the LST, I am pretty sure the LSI is a replacement rather than augmenting the LST. Besides, what do you care? You regularly pissed on the LST anyway (note fished mine yesterday in the windstorm and found it quite enjoyable . . . see I am not just a Winston snob).

I care because I strive to help others find quality bargins?

No, the LST line is back, full force, in the new catalogue.. I assume what actually happened was a new provider of blanks or other materials neccessicated a purge of NOS so the new makers LSTs could hit the floor en masse.

The LSI is a wholly seperate, and less extensive, line claiming to have "more lien speed" and "smoother, faster actions"

I didn't like my LST. I have brand snobbery regarding Cabela's, but I do own an XST (crap!) and an LST switch (meh, but I think I'm meh on the switch rod thing because I just don't know what I'm supposed to do with it, and don't have a real line).

I just got my cabelas mag yesterday and agree lst appears to be continuing. Not sure why they have them half price last few months but they are a great deal at that price.

The NRX reminded me of the St Croix Legend Elite, just ugly. I like the flat matte finish of the NRX (kind of like the St Croix Ultra) but why the baby blue wraps? Ugggg.


I was just talking with a bud of mine about this today. He commented that he'd seen one in person, I have only seen pictures. We both agreed that they are butt ugly! Loomis makes some absolutely beautiful rods, I really like the GLX for example. The baby blue wraps on that rod make it look just awful. Sorry, but if i'm going to spend that much on a fly rod, I've obviously got expectations as to the performance but also expect the rod to be asthetically appealing.
