I want to get a 7 or 7"6 3wt rod. I am retired and we are putting 2 kids thru college so price is a factor. The second factor is I want to purchase the rod locally and LRO is about 2 hrs away but I don't know which rods they carry that will fit my budget. I am looking in the $100-$150 range. Any suggestions?
Look for a used Scott G series 6' 11" rod. You can buy them pretty cheap on Ebay. A great rod with a lot of back bone in it.
