    I have this same rod and it is my favorite 7 wt. It is very powerful without being too stiff. It also has a reputation of being difficult to break.

    Great rod!

    This is what I do as well. A lot of fly shops close out fly lines at this time of year and you can often find lines that retailed for $80+ selling for under $40 now.
