    I won't advise you one way or another relative to financial priorities, that's ultimately up to you and/or your wife. But I will chime in about that rod. I was previously lukewarm on a lot of the TFO...

    Somebody should grab this. I have one of the Gurus, and that's a good price on a great reel. If I needed that size, I'd be all over it.

    I haven't cast either rod specifically, but I have had rods from both brands. I'm not sure if it's still this way, but it used to be that Scott's was a slightly better warranty. It used to be that...

    Brian-

    I missed your original comment about the neoprene feet being too tight. If that's the case, and if you're willing to spend a little more, Simms used to have a program where they would...

    My first thoughts were the Sage One and Winton BIIIX. Similar actions in my opinion, good at distance but excellent performance at close range too. The Orvis H2 strikes me as a similar rod, though...

    Tough to make sense of what sells quickly and what doesn't sometimes. I thought all three of these would have disappeared quickly even at the originally posted prices. I have the BIIX in that same...

    That IS a great action for smallmouth, or all around fly fishing in general. I have the Sage VPS, which Sage rolled out after the RPL was discontinued, built with the same blanks but less expensive...
