I've sent rods in to Orvis and Scott. I've only had issues with Orvis. They are better with their rods than they are with anything else they sell, especially dog beds.
I've casted a few of the A4's. They are similar to the S3's.
They aren't very fast at all, at least the trout weights.

I never said Scott wasn't a quick turnaround. My point was that they charge $50 plus shipping. With Orvis - I pay nothing when I break a rod. End of story.

Scott performance - yes, they are great rods in my experience. I won't take that away from them at all. I do like the Orvis product as well, especially the Helios.

Again, it really depends on what type of fishing you are doing, etc.

As has been stated, you can't go wrong with either rod. What is important is what fits you and your fishing style the best. I have several Orvis rods, not an Access, but I do have its predecessor the TLS and have been more than pleased with its quality and performance and their customer service is outstanding.

I use the Orvis Clearwaters all the time. Love their warrenty as well...Have broke off the tip twice and they replaced the complete setups. Only changed for shipping and handling.

Hi Pennypackflyer, I also have two Orvis Clearwater rods. They are sweet rods aren't they? I especially like my 8 1/2 ft 4wt. In my opinion they are a great value for the money.

Took it to the Factory store in Downingtown, PA. They gave me a new rod and took ther hassle of sending my old one back. It was a true factory defect though. I had another one that I broke (fishing too hard!) and I had to ship it back. It cost me about $15 to ship it back and that was it.

The 2 recent encounters I had with Scott involved me paying to ship it (about $15) and then paying them a $50 service fee. Heck, I only had $118 in the rod from them. That was enough right there to end it for me.

Again, not saying they are a bad rod - but if I can get a rod that performs as well cheaper with a much better customer service program, I'm going to take it...
