Anybody had a chance to cast one of these along with a Butterstick?
Will say I have casted the 7'6" 4wt Orvis and loved it. I will be looking at the 5wt for me.
EVERYONE should own a good 7'6" glass 4 wt IMO.
Find a way to treat yourself.
Yes. Butterstick is a MUCH slower action rod than the Superfine Glass. I do like the Butterstick, too, but it is REALLY slow in comparison. still, when properly managed, the Butterstick does lay down a small dry more delicately than most rods I've cast -- the only thing close is the Orvis Superfine Touch.
Thanks Dan, sounds like I need to cast both. My two existing 3wt rods need a glass friend. I just can't imagine something smoother than my Sage LL 379

That's quite a quiver full of glass!
Anyone interested in learning about glass rods should just hang out here: http://fiberglassflyrodders.com/forum/index.php
Leland, sorry for hijacking your Orvis glass thread. But folks can read a lot about the Orvis glass rods in the link above, specifically this long thread: http://fiberglassflyrodders.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=45523
