I appreciate the info. I follow the board pretty close and trust both opinions. I purchased one used today for 300. I didn't think this was a bad deal. I really like Scott rods but have no experience with this model. I was fishing an Avid 8' 4WT and really liked it. I do so much small stream fishing that I wanted to upgrade but make sure that I got a rod that I liked. It is seldom that I see the Fibertouch in a fly shop so I haven't had the chance to cast one. Hope it is as good as Grumpy and Troutman have said!
Thanks again fellas.
