Well, for good or ill, I’ve pulled the trigger and ordered an 8’ 3/4 wt. glass rod from this guy: https://www.graywolfrods.com/steffenfiberglass

I ended up there after spending some time on the “Fiberglass Manifesto” site. I wanted to have the Steffen Bros make it, but I think they may be retiring from that end of things, so the next best thing is to have someone use their blanks.

This feels like more of an adventure than ordering from one of the big names. And that’s part of the appeal for me. Rolling the dice a little and keeping the fingers crossed.

Will be looking for a simple reel to balance the outfit, and my intention is to look at new makers there too. OR, maybe a name-brand that’s been lightly used.

I’ll post a picture once I have the thing in my hand.

Tim

I have three 4 wt rods and love them all:

1. Orvis T3 9' 4 piece, tip flex
2. Orvis Helios 10' 4 piece tip flex
3. Cabelas IMG 7' 6" 2 piece

Each has a specific use and love all of them...

Fantasy four weigh, for the right price... Orvis Superfine "Trout Bum" 7'6" 9.5 tip flex. I bet that would be an amazing rod with many uses...

Have an awesome day!

I know this might seem like showing off, but I'm pretty excited. The builder sent me photos of my new glass 3/4 wt rod, just finished and shipping today. I can't to wave it around.

Nice looking rod. The one thing I really like is the down locking reel seat. I'm a traditionalist and have never cozied up to the trend for a while of the uplocking seats. Hope you enjoy it. Since my favorite rod is off trying to locate a spare tip I may have to break out my fiberglas rod for old times sake. Taking first part of week off to clear my thoughts and a river will hopefully wash away my frustrations.
