Just throwing it out there for anyone interested..

I don't fish much cabelas rods since one of my first rls combos a long time ago (which wasn't horrible and I still have the reel) and a few 3 forks rods ive setup for kids..but I decided to pick up the CGR 6'2 2wt... they are on sale right now with a rod tube for around 35$. I ordered a few for myself and a couple to give away.

Was pretty impressed with the fit and finish and casted it a few times... for 35 bucks... not a bad little brookie rod for someone who doesn't have one.

Anyways just thought I'd mention it because they are so cheap right now...would be a good gift for someone needing a small stream rod.

Man... I thought it was a steal when those CGR rods were all $50. I bought a 2wt, 4wt and 7wt...

Turns out, that little 2wt is one of my favorite rods!

Curious as to how these rods are, tempted to buy one at that price just to see.  Many people don't care about the "look" of their rod, but seriously doubt the "finish" part of this rod is impressive.  Functionality is the main reason people want a rod, but some want a nice finish as well, and most rod companies actually do a poor job in that realm.

Wraps are tight and the cork is middle of the road quality wise... for that price it's decent. You can't even buy line and barely a premade tube for that price.

I will say that there sizing for line weight and rod length is quite awkward... the 2wt makes sense but the rest are funky.
