    Ranging in length from 7 ft to 8.5, and wt from 3 wt to 7 or 8 wt.
    but I build them (bamboo). They just keep piling up

    These seem to meet my current needs:

    8 weight Orvis Trident TLS 968-4
    6 weight Sage XP 697-4
    5 weight Homer Jennings Bamboo 7 1/2"
    4 weight Winston LT5, 8' 9"

    I'm in the market for a 8 or 8 1/2 bamboo rod to fish wet flies with.

    I have a total of 27 Fly rods, But then again I am a Part time flyfishing Guide and instructor. My rods range from $40 Martins to a few $600 Sages, and one Thomas & Thomas. I have them from a 2WT up to a 10WT and I am looking to by a 12 WT in the next few Months.

    Yuhina, they're in the process of introducing the 11 ft 4 wt as a two-hander, currently it's just a single handed rod. Hopefully they will bring it to the market in Spring... maybe sooner. The 11 ft 4 wt I have is a prototype that they are fitting a second hander that I can screw on to the existing single handed butt. I'll let you know when it's finished and they get it to me. I'll post a pic on the spey page. Fred Evans was curious as well. There will be a whole line a switch rods introtuced and hopefully will be on the market in 08' If you are intersted in getting one of those 11 4wt speys let me know. Fethastyx is going to build some of these opti blanks into two handers before market...only a few though. Adam.

    Yes to all except the CTX. I need to thin the herd to make room for a couple of them. I have backups, to my backups backup.
