    Here is my humble list -

    2 wt 6'6" Orvis Superfine One-Ounce
    3 wt 5'0" Rainshadow Custom Built
    3 wt 6'0" W.W. Grigg GX
    3 wt 7'6" Sage Launch
    5 wt 9'0" LL Bean Travel Series
    5 wt 9'6" Sage FLi
    6 wt 8'6" Fenwick Fiberglass Custom
    7 wt 9'0" Sage DS2

    I really want a new all-around 5wt - I just can't decide between the Sage SLT, XP, Winston BIIX or Burkheimer.

    Hard to decide. :beathead:

    what's wrong with that 5 wt. 9'6" FLi? I would think that would be a candidate for an all-around 5 wt. . . .

    I've got three:
    7wt 9' Orvis - for shad, smallmouth, and fishing in lakes
    5wt 9' Sage - for all my stream trout; I really want to try this on shad :)
    9wt 14' Sage - for all my steelhead time

    The next one to add to the collection is a 10wt 9' devoted solely for chinook.
