Scott Fly Rods has come out with a new “A4” rod series. The company described casting A4 on its IFTD entry form: “Like the first time you heard Iggy Pop, only better.” As “stooges” with our own Motor City roots, we can respect that, but we won’t leave it there. A4 has the typical, not-overdone-by-speed casting action that Scott aficionados have come to appreciate over the years. It also features some nice accents, like REC components, the company’s lifetime warranty, and Scott’s signature low-profile sleeve ferrule. The real appeal is the multi-modulus graphite blanks. Priced in the mid $300s (for a wide range of sizes and applications, from spring creeks, to the tarpon flats), if you are a Scott fan, and you want a fair reason to buy another rod, this is a good one.
