    I love rod bond,it's just so user friendly. If you need something that sets up faster, U40 now has Quick Bond, I think it's a 10-15 min epoxy, but still has the same thick consistency as Rod Bond.

    I have a 5'3" Fenwick glass rod that I have used for tight areas. It roll casts very well. Roll casting is how I always fish the tight spots. I also have a 6'6" 2wt that I use now.

    A 2wt weight is not twice as heavy as a 1wt. Grain weight on a 1wt is 60 grains, a 2wt is 80 grains. A 4wt is 120 grains and a 5wt is 140 grains.
