When it comes to low-cost quality rods, I'm a fan of Cortland. A lot of people say positive things about the brook series. In fact, when I bought my rod, I went with the intention of buying one. It was a fine rod, just not what I wanted. Slower action, more a trico/midge type rod than a brookie buster, and that isn't my brookie style. I chose the GRX, and am more than happy with that purchase, it is my main brookie rod. They don't make it anymore. Just lookin at their lineup, it looks like the pro-cast series may have replaced the GRX. I've not casted them, but if I were in the market for a cheap brookie rod, that'd be #1 on my list (of course I'd want to test it first against others). They have a 7'6" 4 wt, which would be my choice. They also have a 7' 3 wt.

The brook series I've seen retailing $150-$200, and the pro-cast series $100-$150.


I agree. It's a great little rod. And not just for the money. It's a great rod, period. I like my GRX better than most of my Sages. It's very light and crisp (not too fast.). A joy to cast, especially in tight surroundings.

I'll go out a little further here and say it is my favorite trout rod.

I have a 7' 6" Grey's Streamflex. I think you might like the action and how that rod fishes.

Well after much debate, I bought an Albright GP 3wt. I saved a few bucks to use it on other items, and I'll update on how it fishes. Hopefully it'll come before the JAM, so I can catch a few brookies up there on it.

Ryan, I think that rod will serve you well for your purpose.

I think so too. I was thinking about it as I was driving around between appointments and just said it was time to buy it. It'll serve as a good rod for a few years. Not the "ultimate rod" but I wasn't looking for that. Now that extra money is burning a hole in my pocket and I've been on ebay and craigslist looking for something else to buy

My new rod just came in the mail today. I was very suprised that it came so quick. Ordered it on Friday, shipped out yesterday and came in today. Was hoping I could use it at the JAM. Looks great, can't wait to give a report.
