    [QUOTE=buzzerfan;2330728]I did have a rush of blood..... and did a review on the 476 for their site a couple of years ago which describes what I like, its on this page...

    https://swiftflyfishing.com/collecti...iant=335191461

    The 580 is a very similar rod action wise, just longer and more powerful. Ive landed trout to nearly 9lbs on the 76 #4 with no problem and its the rod I fish 95% of the time. The 376 is a lovely small stream rod but discontinued I think, the blanks were on offer a few weeks ago. The 480 is much loved by the fiber rodders in the States, its quite different, still a lovely stick, but slower. Happy to chat via PM about any of them if youre interested.

    I can only see the first few lines of any review on their site with my iPad but I get the gist, looks like they have lots of fans.
    Thanks for sharing, I'll PM with a couple of questions later.
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.

    Apologies Andrew, I've just read your full, glowing review on the Swift website.
    As I say, will PM later.

    One does not simply contact Sandy, you dont choose the glass, the glass chooses you.

    Alternatively you could look him up on FB or his website Epic Fast Glass
