anti team's suggestion is excellent! It's a modern fiberglass rod that is listed as a 3wt, but Kabuto rods are fast for glass, so could also take a 4wt line. Because it's a fast glass rod, it will feel close in action to the slower graphite of an SPL (or LL). Sagebass (Colt) is a good guy too; I know him from the Fiberglass Flyrodders forum and many have used his rods. He does good work. And $350 is a good price considering a Kabuto from the Japanese maker himself is around $600.

I don't know the Kabuto but I have two glass rods built by Colt. No hesitation there. Could very well be a rod equally coveted by your friend. I know Kabuto's are highly regarded in glass circles.

Ya, just talk to him. Tell you you'll buy him whatever he wants for a replacement. (Within reason of course). You may be pleasantly surprised... Maybe the thought of getting to pick out a cool rod that he'd never buy for himself would be something he'd very much enjoy.

Be straight. Friendships won't end over a piece of gear. If so, you were not really friends anyway.

Closing loop. I went to freewebs.com/flysupplies and finally got a quote for a new rod so I could offer the replacement.

I called my buddy and told him the bad news offering the replacement.

"Shit happens, that is why I bought a Sage."

He even wanted to pay the $50 to upgrade I told him way.

Crisis averted.

Please close thread.
