: Wright & McGill, experience anyone?

hi, i have been looking for a nice rod in the #4 weight for some time and found Wright and McGill is still producing rods, allthough be it carbon ones nowadays, does anyone have experience with those rods? they sure look nice on their website, but i cant feel one IRL since there r no dealers i know of in europe.
All experience on the rods is much appreciated

Huib -

Actually I once owned a Wright & McGill rod but it was an 8wt and graphite (Granger?). I liked the rod but frankly soon upgraded to an RPL and for the application (steelhead) I don't think there was a better single hand rod made for summer steelhead than the 9'6" 8wt RPL so that rod was sold at a yard sale.

That's all the experience I have with them.
