Many thanks!!!

I know what y'all mean ... Rods have improved so much over the past 20 years. A rod can be med-fast and cut a tight loop without being a broom stick! So far, I've been pretty impressed with the TFO products. I tried a bunch of 'em and I own an Axiom for big trout (in a 6wt). The Axiom is missing a bit of punch when I get the whole line out the guides, but from what I understand, this isn't a necessary cast for Bonz. The rod casts fine, it just fades a bit on the power end while double hauling. This doesn't affect fish fighting.

I'm looking around slowly. I still have almost 10 months to get rigged properly and to practice (does it sound like i'm starting to get excited!!!)
