Oh my....all my EU buddies are raving about these rods ....you leave me no choice...guess I will be ringing Bonaventure for a rod this summer...
The wife...hmmmmm....sometimes I wish I never taught her to fly fish...my friend just pokes any new gun or rod into his collection and his wife doesn't even notice....mine would be like..."Ok, where did you get the new Instinct!!! And keep your grubby sticky little fingers outta my fly vest....I'm missing a shooting head that matches that rod!"
ah ah ah ..ok but the other side of the coin is that you can have a great discount when buying more Instincts
a Instinct rod will come, email them and ask
I asked them earlier and 500 Euro incl shipping for 13,3' in EU
a little bit more for the 13,7' and 15 ' cause their leangth
anbody tried these yet?
Competition 15'#10 - Zpey
Zpey have a valid point,
The actions of the different Zpey fly rods have always intrigued fly fishers all over the world.
Deep, powerful, smooth and with relatively tough tips and short stroke lengths. Actions made for fly fishing, but also performing in different kinds of competitive fly casting; to a certain level, that is. Performing to a certain level was not good enough for Zpey, of course, so we decided to design a full range of Competition Fly Rods and to present them to the market in 2010.
why is it that they seem to be able to produce a rod that seems to be realy resposive with a powerfull action.
I tried one of there rods at a blenheim a good few years back, and a was very tempted to buy one , the blanks realy are nice.
