These are amazing fly rods. In fact, they are Hans' favorite for all around trout fishing. Hans' top picks are the 8'4" 2 weight and the 8'8" 4 weight. They are my go to trout rods for the Black Hills, Bighorn Mountains, or just about anywhere I find trout on small to medium sized streams.
Here is what Scott has to say:
If you stalk big, wary trout with tiny flies, long leaders and light tippet, look no further for the perfect fishing tool.
G2 rods inspire confidence and fierce loyalty. It comes from knowing exactly where your fly is going to land and from knowing that when you hook that big selective fish on fine tippet your rod is going to perform to land it.
G2 rods combine compound progressive taper designs, multi-modulus lay ups, and thin-walled, natural finish blanks, fit with the finest componentry and craftsmanship.
What does that mean? It means that the last few minutes spent on your hands and knees crawling into position below a big riser won’t leave you wondering if 7X tippet is a cruel joke.
The G2, Scott’s ultimate presentation tool.
Material: Multi modulus graphite lay ups with ARC reinforcement
