    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.

    William Olsen Bench Made Fly Reels.

    Hello Steve, I like Wagner's attitude ( you get it when you get it ) in my layman's opinion it's one of the best engineered reels made, I think the no3 is the second batch he has made over a five year period. The whole reel is aesthetically pleasing and what skill he must have, Amazing.

    Loop Greenline 13.2" #9

    I would think an Skagit line 400/ 425 would be about right. You can cut it back ( thick end ) to find the best weight for your rod. I prefer one piece lines myself a good choice would be the Barrio range, ( switch & scandi ).

    Have you both seen the J.D. Wagner model 3 probably one of the nicest reels about at the moment. I think he is going to be making the larger sizes soon.

    The Sage Trout LL mentioned by cgaines10 is a river Trout rod medium action, not a small lake/loch rod. The igniter you might find to stiff, a rod that will give you a combination of feel and power would be a Scott Radian 9' x 5 which is actually a five and a half.

    Casting Troubles

    First get a book on casting by Lefty Kreh second by an 8' or 8'6'' x 4/5. Because it's easy to cast compared to an 8wt. If you buy maxcrap you end up with maxcrap. You can find a good enough rod second hand for fifty pounds if you ring around the dealers.

    Hardy glass test, brook

    It seems they are not well liked by the Americans To soft and slow. Have a look at Woronoco custom fly rods or for a bit more money look at Graywolf fly rods.
