    For many years, all the rods I owned did NOT have alignment dots, and I'd see where others did and wonder why all the manufacturers wouldn't include such an obvious convenience. Once I did wind up...

    While whatfly and I probably have different tastes in rods, we're in complete agreement on the main points. As we both said, it's personal preference. My broomstick is your outstanding rod. My...

    Rod preferences have always been a matter of individual preference of course, but I feel the same as you. When fast action rods became more common, I didn't care for most of them because of the lack...
