Cheap Glass

Thanks to a sale on Cabela's and some old unused gift cards, the under $30 (to me) 50th Anniversary C.G.R. fly rod ended up on my doorstep this weekend.  She's all rigged and ready to get her wiggle on.  Waiting out this work week is going to be tough.  The revolution will not be televised.

  1. Nice!

    I got the 7/8wt, 7'6" for bassin' in the fall & was tempted to get another one that sale was announced.

    Have fun with it!

    1. in the non-sleep-deprived version of English, that should read " to get another one when that sale was announced."

    2. The bigger rod sounds like it would be a blast.

    1. Yeah, I'm one of those weird tenkara dudes that just can't go totally reel-less.

    1. I have heard the same. It's my first foray into fiberglass...that rod has a lot of action to it.

  7. I've been drooling over these rods since they debuted, and they finally dropped the price... and I couldn't bring myself to buying one now. I don't know why. I just ordered an 8'6" 3 weight Stowaway instead - which cost almost double the sale price on these CGR's.

    I guess part of it was the fact that I've got a little Wright & McGill 7' 2 weight, and an Eagle Claw glass 6'6" 4 weight to cover the short & light end of the spectrum, and on the other end, I wasn't thrilled with their 6 weight model (since i've already got the LSi 9' 6 weight) - and if I need more than a six, I have my Echo 8 weight to step up to for throwing the really heavy stuff. And I guess part of it is that I still want to build myself an 8' 5 weight Steffen this year.
