It seemed highly likely that the GS 884-4 would offer some form of disappointment compared with its unrivaled predecessor. Casting the GS 884-4 allowed us to accept that Bartschi had actually made quantitative improvements in design, and that the whole family of new rods was likely to surpass the previous generation. The GS 884-4 is clearly superior in stability in resulting accuracy to the G2 884-4. Lovers of the original will find the new model to swing lighter and form more consistent loops with a wider variety of lines...The G2 884-4 was the favorite all-around trout 4-weight at the Telluride Angler for many years. Obviously, we were skeptical that the new rod could improve upon its predecessor. Well, skeptics can kick rocks. The GS 884 is surprisingly superior in every way. The GS 884 is lighter, throws a wider variety of loop shapes, including tight loops, and feels livelier and more spring without being bouncy. You can notice these changes with the simple waggle test. Hold the GS 884 and the G2 884 side by side. Without a line or reel on the rod, waggle both and notice how quickly the GS 884 comes back to static. When casting the GS 884, the caster drives the loop backwards and feels confidence exude through the line straightening. The forward cast is natural and noticeable and the loops drive ahead flat and parallel. A truly wonderful rod to cast... This rod has been used by an experienced angler and has been treated with care. It is in excellent condition in all respects.
