    One of my mates has the 15ft fx1 very nice powerful rod,but he doesn't use it that often as he prefers his 14ft g2,

    I was speaking to a young lad just a few days ago in Dumfries,who works for scotlands biggest angling center,now he told me sales of salmon tackle have plummeted [his words] salmon rods and lines are sitting in the shop gathering dust,
    Until the salmon situation improves I would guess the majority of people would have to seriously think hard about spending 1000 on a rod,no matter how good it maybe ?

    He did say sales of trout gear was still strong !!

    Thumbs up Graphene FX1

    Bought a 14' from Mortimer's and used it all last week on the Spey, to say I am very pleased would be an understatement . It works magically well with a RIO 9/10 Spey F, you can cast a very presentable fly into the next County, double Spey casting is superb, oh but the cost , you have to talk your own deal.
    It performs similar to the Vision MAG 14', which I carry as my No.2 rod now.
    BTW, anyone in the market for a very tidy 16' SAGE ?

    Default Deals

    I am looking to get a 15' Fx1 before the end of the season, most dealers are offering the usual 10% off, anyone know of any good deals being offered anywhere as not a cheap rod.

    Cheers

    Apologies for thread jumping, I also have a 14ft 9wt FX1 for sale. Was selling a while back then had a trip offered so kept it and used it for a 3 days in Norway, so its in great condition. Not used it since due to using my 12ft 6" Zenith for my local smaller rivers.

    600 would buy it, pm if of interest.

    I used both the Mackenzie Perflex and FX1 as demo rods when I fished the Thurso earlier this year. Certainly the FX1 is a superb piece of kit but I would struggle to justify the 700 price differential.
