I previously purchased this outfit, and the manufacturing of the rod was poor. I returned it, and the company that distributes the rod and reel were very gracious. They convinced me that this was a rarity - that they've sold many of these without complaint (thousands). I reordered another outfit and this set was fine. I haven't used it, since it was gift for a family member, but it appears to be good quality with a good feel. I would have given it 5 stars if I had a chance to fish with it.
I bought this for my boyfriend because he broke his other fly fishing rod. He was slightly hesitant about me picking out his new fishing rod because his last one was very nice. He has since used the rod and loves it. Says that it is just as nice as his old one.
Last week I ordered the GoldMedal Fly rod outfit in both 8.5 and 9 footmodels I was very curious about the quality, and was very happy. Rods are great I buy similar rods that started at over $150.00 and more by themselves. Add the rest of the outfit and It makes a fantastic bargain for under $100.00. I love deals like this and especially the quality was so superior.
I recently ordered the Gold Medal II fly fishing outfit for a Christmas gift. I've decided to KEEP it for myself and am ordering additional sets as Christmas gifts. We ordered spin pole sets this past summer and had a ball all season long.
What brand is the fly reel? Your description states S.A. Does that stand for Scientific Angler?cowboys54 on Jun 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us cowboys54. "We build our own line of reels and use our own brand name. This is
the way most reels are made. A few makers build reels for many
Brands. You might find our same reel under other brands in America
and Europe. Only the very high end build their own and even then, they
all do not. It isn't the brand that is as important as the overall quality for the money.
These reels are MSRP at $35.00".Quoted from manufacturer. I hope that helps.

Thank you for your question blueshoe52. The Gold Medal II 8 1/2- 2 pc 9 ft- 2 pc and our 9 ft- 4 pc are all rated for either a 5 or 6 weight fly line. The lines cast equally well. Have a great day.
