Was wondering if anyone could help me compare these two rods on whatever basis. I've cast the Scott and liked it but prefer the T&T finish and components which I have not cast. I have a Sage 9140-4 and was looking for a bit more casting range for the Snake and Clearwater. Probably casting a Windcutter or Mid-Spey. Thanks.

I have used both rods and love the T&T, particularly for getting that extra bit of distance. Their 14' #9 is my allround favourite outfit and I would not change it for anything.
I assume you are talking about the Scott ARC model? This is too soft for me and doesn't hold a good forward loop. It also has trouble in lifting up the 24' 400 grainBig Boy sink tips that I have to use. However, Scott's SAS 14' for a #9 is a real beauty. I don't think it is available in a 4 piece, but the rod is wonderful. Light, well balanced, and with a very nice crisp, tip action that can easily pick up the deep tips and throw tight loops on the forward cast as well.
Have fun with the one you end up with.
All the best
