    some rods are great parking lot performers, others dont shine as bright until you're on the water. how bout a curve cast with a double taper and a 15' leader, or dead into the wind, or setting the hook on a pmd rise at 80'. that stuff is just as important to me as a straight line cast at 30 or 80' what about ferrule fit, or how the cork will feel after 3000 hours ? unbiased or not, its a marketing move, dont just cast a rod before you buy, if at all possible, fish it.

    Hell, it reminds me of wine tasting by ascot wearing turds.
