    What are your thoughts on the 691 XP versus the 691 TCR?

    Man, I don't have a 1 or a 17! Only 4 through 12! (but 2 or more deep at each spot - you gotta have extra in case of breakage, you know, and for loaners).

    if i had to chose one it would be the xp. the xp is a better all-around fly rod, but the tcr can launch a line far and is definitely more beefy in fighting fish.

    Business won't be good until you get your ass over here and hook a few big bones Frymaster! The Coach

    PS I chose a lifestyle, for my children, my wife and me. That lifestyle just hovers above dirt poor, but we see each other every day, we swim, we play, we fish and we get to be a family every day and that's all that matters to us. Aloha and tight lines Duffer.

    What? No McMansion? No BMW or Lexus? No summer home or ski lodge? How unAmerican of you!

    Good on you Coach. Hopefully as we move through the current economic adjustment, one of the casualties will be our culture of consumption and the notion that getting something for nothing is an entitlement for all citizens.

    Stepping down off my soapbox now.

    I am in complete support Coach, please don't misunderstand as you will never meet anyone happier than me that business is good. I am just seriously jealous. Clearly you spent your BMW, McMansion and Lexxus money on fly rods.

    And as soon as my boy gets a date for his mid-tour leave from K-16, S. Korea there will be a PM headed your way as we are going to meet him in Hawaii for some R&R.

    BTW any chance we can use a couple of those Burkheimers?

    If you want, you'll have a custom Burky in your hands every minute you chase monster bones. See ya soon. Duffer
