    No love for the Echo TR? Awesome rod IMHO. Good for scandis, skagits, junk, anti-junk...seems to do it all as far as I can tell. And the butt section makes a great whop stick, for all your whoppin' needs.

    Redington CPX 7wt. Just got one for $250 used and love it with the Airflo Rage 450 line. Might be able to find a new one on clearance for $250-300.

    A good used Meiser, Anderson (aka ACR), or a Burkie.
