I have been hearing rumors online about the A3, a new mid priced rod from Scott. It's supposed to be an upgrade from the current A2 model. Does anyone have information?

Thanks

I may have a bit of info ;-)

The new A3 is an upgrade to the A2 rods. Here's the techie stuff. Jimmy sweetened up the tip a bit and stabilized the mid section to make the action smooth. He also pulled the swing weight back toward the grip making the rod feel much lighter when you're casting it. The comments I've been getting from the folks casting my samples have been about how smooth and easy the rod is to cast. I don't have a pic saved but you can check it out at www.scottflyrod.com (http://www.scottflyrod.com)


I'll be up at LRO next week if you're wanting to cast one.
