    Default Scott G2

    What's the overall opinion of the Scott G2? 9' 5wt?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    While i've only parking lot cast one, i liked it, i'm an old Scott fan, it felt better than a G to me & i was able to shoot the entire line, something i had trouble doing with a G
    Accurate up close & tracked well to boot, then again a Winston WT or Orvis T3 or Zero in a mid flex will do the same thing with a little more autority

    Guys,
    I ended up getting the Scott G2. I went with a 9' 5wt and it casts like a dream. Short 15' casts, and longer 40' casts, no problem. I hit the water tonight with it and it performed perfectly. I really like this rod.

    It may be a bit big for the GSMNP, but 99% of the fishing I do is warm water after bass and panfish. This rod is going to be great for that.

    I did go after trout tonight in a local tailwater and hooked up with a very large brown, but I let it break my line (6x tippet) by not anticipating it's last run before the net. As I was reaching behind me for the net, it made a run and I didn't react fast enough and put too much pressure on the fish and the line snapped. I had several good looks at the fish and I'm guessing 17-18" to be the conservative size estimate.

    Jeff
