    So? Have you bought it yet?

    Tom,
    it's seldom about need. Go ahead and buy it.my GL3 was one of my favorite small streamer rods. My son started fishing it about 10 years ago and he wont give it back. Nice rod for the price.
    Best,

    Tom,
    I still have two others even with my son absconding with the 7.5' for 4wt..
    I just picked up two bamboo rods so I can't push it too much.
    Have fun with it.
    Best,

    Thomas,

    You'll be happy to know that I've put you out of your misery, or at least pulled the briar out of your foot. The pain will go away eventually, by then of course, you'll find another briar to step on

    I don't really need another fly rod, but a nice 4wt with some backbone at a good price sounded like a nice addition to my arsenal.

    p.s.

    Thomas,

    The rod arrived today and if it is not new, it is very lightly used or perhaps a store demo rod. The only reason I say this is that there is slight staining on the cork grip. That said, it is in as-new condition and a very sweet little rod. I'll see if I can take it out this weekend to try it out.
