I have a 3wt Lamiglas honey that has become one of my favorite rods over the years. Unfortunately it's only a 2 piece, which doesn't make it ideal for backpacking or hiking. I was looking through ebay for a cheap glass rod and came across Maxcatch, made in China. I read some reviews, watched a few youtube videos, and pulled the trigger on a 3wt, 7' 3 piece in the orange color. I also ordered one of their cheap reels while I was at it. a package arrived about a week later, and I am seriously impressed. the rod is beautiful, has great action, fits tight. and the reel is smooth and looks like it should cost 2x as much as it did. This will be my go-to creeking, bikepacking, and backpacking rod this summer. Lined it with a Rio DT 3wt and it casts nice. anyways, thought i'd mention it, since I haven't seen anything about maxcatch on here. I ordered directly from the site and put in a 20% off code, out the door price was $107 shipped. they even gave me a sun buff, a chest pack and free line as a gift. no affiliation, just impressed.
