Alrighty then. I appreciate the renewed interest and input but my dilemma has been resolved by a friend who's selling me one of his Ross BG7's. On another note, does anyone have input on TFO Lefty Kreh Professional Series Fly Rods? In addition to a new 12wt I need to gear up with 4pc travel rods in wts 7,8, & 10. These rods seem to fit the bill based on cost and reputation.
