    Anybody had a chance to cast one of these along with a Butterstick?

    Will say I have casted the 7'6" 4wt Orvis and loved it. I will be looking at the 5wt for me.

    EVERYONE should own a good 7'6" glass 4 wt IMO.
    Find a way to treat yourself.

    Yes. Butterstick is a MUCH slower action rod than the Superfine Glass. I do like the Butterstick, too, but it is REALLY slow in comparison. still, when properly managed, the Butterstick does lay down a small dry more delicately than most rods I've cast -- the only thing close is the Orvis Superfine Touch.

    Thanks Dan, sounds like I need to cast both. My two existing 3wt rods need a glass friend. I just can't imagine something smoother than my Sage LL 379

    That's quite a quiver full of glass!
