    Default WTB Thomas and Thomas Vagabond 5 weight

    Hello,

    Looking for a Thomas and Thomas Vagabond 5 weight, preferably 8 weight, 7 piece.

    Please let me know if you have one that is not being used, and you might consider selling.

    Cheers,
    Ron

    I think T&T fly rods are really nice but they never sold well out on the West Coast.

    Sage, Winston, Orvis, Scott and G.Loomis are pretty stiff competition.

    It is hard to sell too many brands of high end fly rods in a fly shop.

    Agreed Bill. Out here on the East Coast, they have a pretty good reputation, being From Massachusetts and all. And I'm with you...Sage, Winston, Loomis, plenty of goodness out there. This particular rod breaks down easy and small for some backpacking/bikepacking adventures I'm planning. Only other I can think of is the Winston Passport.

    Redington makes a sweet 6 pc rod. It is in the Classic Trout series. It comes in a 380-6 or a 590-6.

    Check them out. You will be surprised on the quality of them and at $169.99 they are a steal.
