Default Moonshine rods

Does anyone have any experience with this brand?
I've been using a hand me down 9' 5 wt TFO, but I'm wanting to upgrade to a more nymph specific rod. I was looking at the 10' syndicate, but then I ran across the 10'6" 3 wt moonshine. The price is very appealing, and I'm not opposed to the extra reach.

That's what I was hoping to hear.
Yeah, Greg mentioned you getting one, and that's really what put them on my radar.

Check the midnight specials, they sell out almost as quick as they hit the website but some of them are incredible looking

Right when I decided to pull the trigger on the moonshine 10' 6" 3wt they tell me they won't be back in stock until mid to late September.
Now, let's just see if I can take the wait!

In the same boat. It was August and they keep pushing it back...considering getting the Fenwick 10' 3wt

Default 10% off

The Moonshine rep for our area, Austin Shoemaker, posted on a FF group on Facebook today saying to use his promo code (shoemaker) for 10% off.

Sweet, thanks!

I've actually debated on grabbing their 8wt hybrid too for a vacation I've got planned in October. I wouldn't have much use for it outside of the occasional surf fishing.

I'm hoping that since they just finished those hybrid rods up they'll start gearing up for the epiphany.
I've been watching their Facebook like a hawk!

I bought the Ephipany, 10'6" 3 wt. I like it. Very well made and every rod comes with a lifetime warranty and an extra tip.

They look nice, but I'll stick with TFO's I broke my 4wt this summer and I hadn't registered it, they didn't ask me for anything but said if it's one of their rods send it back. Got a brand new replacement in a few days. It was one of two I have, have a custom split bamboo and Sages and have had a dozen other brands, I use my 4wt ( have a 5wt too which I have only used a couple times because I love my 4wt! ) all the time, and recently I found another one on sale for $100 bucks with a matching reel!
