I only have 2 graphite rods that I fish with anymore, my Winston WT 9-5wt, and a Rainshadow switch. All the rest of my fishing I use fiberglass and bamboo. Realized now after 40 years of flyfishing that I like slow instead of fast. The good glass rods on Ebay are getting pricey, Fenwicks in minty shape going for hundreds of dollars, and forget the good Phillipsons. There's one now on auction at Ebay, high bid is already over 300 dollars and the guy's reserve price hasn't even been met yet. Almost put a absurd high bid on it, and then started thinking that for possibly a few dollars more I can have a brand new rod from McFarland made, so monday morning I'll be calling him. Probably only a small handful of outfits make glass rods anymore. Mark Steffen actually rolls his own blanks and does a good job at it too. McFarland rods are masterpieces. Not sure if he makes his own blanks though, but he does design the tapers. Not real sure how many glass rods I have now seems like I pick one up every other week. Still I'd like to add a couple of Phillipson's and a Berkley parametric or two. Just as well throw in a Fenwick 705 and a 765. Garcia Fibertouch rods are nice too, wouldn't mind getting a couple more of them. While I'm at it a couple more Browning Silaflex rods too.
