    wow... so what if someone thinks your rod is a POS. compared to a lot of rods it probably is.
    I didnt miss the point, I just think its worthless. I still say put your money where your mouth is if you want people to meet up with you. A pitcher of beer might work but if you are really confident in your abilities, because thats what this is going to boil down to, then put something on the line. Your rod perhaps although i doubt 3d would show up for a shot at your flyrod based on his opinion of tfo.
    I have been a lurker, i kinda jumped in with both feet now that i have decided to post. A few days in the office with a desire to talk fishing will do that.

    "can't buy" ?? Or perhaps are just not sold on the marketing hype, brand name, ego boosting, etc....? Being smart with your money doesn't mean you are cheap or you can't afford to pay more. If you are not convinced the price difference is worth it, you are simply being smarter and good with your money...

    Any bet that involves beer sounds like a fun bet to me. Supposed POS TFO versus Sage Xi2. Beach Rod Smackdown 08.
    I'd like to be involved, in the beer drinking part that is. ;)

    Anyone up for an exhibition match before the main event? The contestant who chugs four beers, runs down the beach and casts to 80' first will be declared the winner. WFF Drunken Beach Rod Smackdown 08...

    Sub-card contenders? Proponents of St Croix, Rainshadow, Lami, GLoomis, Redington, Beulah, etc.. Come One, Come All! Step on up! This could become a real happening.

    How quickly this thread was reduced to another blathering that can be interperated as, "Mine is bigger than yours. Let's measure"
    I won't attend. I'm sure the results will come up on WFF.
    Cheers,
    Les

    Try this for a twist... a blind 'taste test'. Blind for each participant and have him\her cast 3 or 4 rods. Then rate each rod base soley on the blind feel of the rod in hand and casting stroke.
    You'd need a way to mask any obvious differences, like cork grip shape\feel for example...

    i dont like the TFOs either. I think they are a POS. --D3Smartie

    Any decent opinions on WFF usually provides someone an idea of the merits or shortcomings of the piece of equipment in question. However, making a statement that any equipment is a POS really doesn't give the one who first posted the thread much help.
    The original poster -- and WFF deserve better.

    Did i say anything les? the original guy called you out, although i dont blame him. Most of your posts lately seem to have little to do with the topic. He asked for opinions. I gave him mine, and hey, atleast i threw in some other opinions and options for him to look at. :eek:
