I finally got a chance to go fishing with my new A4 setup a couple weeks ago at my secret stash stream outside of Talkeetna, Alaska. I was expecting to be really rusty after a winter with no fishing. However, right from the get-go I was placing my streamers and buggers right where I wanted them. I was also able to cast through a pretty steady wind (something I have always struggled with). Being and avid skier and snowboarder, my best comparison is that these rods have a lot of pop and loading action that sling the line out like a higher performance ski or snowboard loading up for a hard high speed turn.
I have already recommended the A4 to a friend who is in the market for a new setup.
Here is a picture of the first fish ever caught on my A4 setup.
Thanks again for your great product and outstanding customer service.
