Pfft...sounds like something an uppity winston user would say.

The only problem I found with my Konic 3.5 is that the tolerances between the spool and the frame is too great. The running line can sneak into the gap

I have several single handed rod brands mostly Orvis because of their remarkable customer service, and great fishing equipment. I broke two rods on one fishing trip ( duh!) and had then both back within two weeks. My hats off to the Orvis rod shop.

This thread begs the question. Can you tell alot about a fisherman by his gear?

depends on what kind of gear we are talking about. I really don't care what my trout gear is. I think that anything bellow a five wt is really more depending on the anglers skill and confidence on landing fish. I use a cabelas L tech that I like. its a little stiff but great for nymphing and streamer fishing. I like my dads old orvis Clearwater 4 wt. I also love my cabelas fiberglass 3 wt. all great rods that have their place.

the places where I do get picky is when buying gear that is going to be used for larger fish. for me this means surf and saltwater applications. for rods and reel you need something that has a lifetime warranty on it. I used to use a Winston Baron but it broke. I bought it used so the warranty was not standing. I did get my moneys worth from it but it was heavy and didn't cast great in the wind. this year I just picked a TFO BVK. the thing is a cannon in the wind and handles fish really well. broke it in nicely this fall on the bass in north jersey.
I used to be a big fan of Lamson reels until this fall. I do like my guru a lot. it lite and sounds great when you get a fish to take some drag. the place where I lost confidence in the brand is m konic. I know its a cheap reel but it the drag system that failed this passed fall on a nice bass. the drag completely opened up when fighting the fish and I lost my drag clutch and had to hand line the fish in from the backing. after thinking about the reel the why the drag system is it looks like it is setup to fail.

now I am looking into new reel brands. seriously considering picking up an allen kraken 10wt or a cheeky 10wt or Galvan. I hear great things about the allens and they are affordable. the cheekys are sick looking and they also seem like great reels. if I had the money I would buy a hatch or something higher quality. I loke my gear to look and sound good that being said it usually cost money to have that so I put the money in the gear where its needed.

this winter I am planning on building a fiberglass 7/8 wt rod for carp and some lite salt use. ordering a blue halo blank and see what buildings like.
I am kinda all over the place with my gear.

If I can read the labels on your gear, then you're too close...

It's best to avoid judging anyone on their choice of tackle.

But, if someone starts judging people on choice of tackle, then you can tell a lot from THAT.

Can you tell a lot about a person if they write "begs the question" rather than "raises the question?"
