    sights for ar 15 for deer hunting

    I used an Aim-Point 2x dot on a 7x64 for driven Boar, when i zeroed it I found you could use it quite happily out to 200 yards at a target. All my shot's where taken under 75 yards on the Boar, the largest was around the 100kg mark. Would not hesitate to use one for woodland hunting.

    Quad cane fly rod

    Quad rods are very popular in the USA, they tend to be stronger more robust and quicker action. How technically better you would have to ask a rod builder. Ask Splinters on here or Gary Marshall.

    Unknown French Cane Maker

    I would say the correct term is Split- cane or bamboo. The American-ism of Boo is unnecessary.

    Scott G2 8’ 4” #3

    I think you are picking nits, I don't think the so called quicker recovery is worth 750.00 over a good s/hand one:cautious:

    Scott G2 8’ 4” #3

    But is it any better than the original G series I wonder. Having tried both I don't think so, ( but then I am slightly bias ) in favour of the original.
