Has anyone ever used one? Dad has one and I've fished it. Very good rod but I have never heard anything about it from other people.

I have had a some, good blank, heavy , bad guides.  I have one still in use 7' 10/20 with a medalist 5000.  Caught this guy with it couple of months ago.

Yup, very good blank, very good budget rod, even tough the guide inserts appear to be brittle. Perhaps the reason why you don 't hear a lot about them has more to do with where you purchase tackle and the politics of purchase and sale of the retailer, perhaps they set a minimum price/level for the rods they sale. Down here you seldomly se a Scimitar, the "cheapest" rod you see around is Clarus or Convergence.
