Yuhina, they're in the process of introducing the 11 ft 4 wt as a two-hander, currently it's just a single handed rod. Hopefully they will bring it to the market in Spring... maybe sooner. The 11 ft 4 wt I have is a prototype that they are fitting a second hander that I can screw on to the existing single handed butt. I'll let you know when it's finished and they get it to me. I'll post a pic on the spey page. Fred Evans was curious as well. There will be a whole line a switch rods introtuced and hopefully will be on the market in 08' If you are intersted in getting one of those 11 4wt speys let me know. Fethastyx is going to build some of these opti blanks into two handers before market...only a few though. Adam.

I am very interested in this model, thanks a lot for the detail information, Adam.
Looking forward to read your report! :beer2:

Will I be a better fisher if I get a lot of rods?
No, but if you are a guy you will win if you have more and better rods than anyone else when you die. Think burky, CND, T&T, Meiser. If you want to be a better fisher take casting lessons and get someone to teach you about how to read a river, know what insects are on (and bellow) the water, and how to get the drift you want. I guarantee you that a person who knows how to fly fish and cast and has been doing it for years can cast further, better, and catch more fish using a $20 kmart rod (with a good line) than someone who has a $5000- $25,000 rod and the best fly line available but has no concept of the fundamentals of casting.


Here are my rods
2 wt tfo finese
2 wt Great Bay Rods winding brook 4 piece 6 foot rod
2 wt great bay rods saxon creek fiberglass
4 wt tfo finese 7 feet 6 inches
4 wt Great Bay Rods isinglass 9 foot
4 wt Great Bay Rods winding brook 7 feet 6 inches
5 wt Great Bay Rods msr 9 foot
5 wreight tfo axiom 9 ft
6 wt sage xp 9 foot
6 weight fiberglass
7 wt Great Bay Rods EMG 9 foot
9 wt Great Bay Rods msr 9 foot
7 wt winston 2bx spey 11 foot
7/8 snowbee spey 13.6 feet
9/10 snowbee spey 15 feet
6 weight tfo pro spey 12.6 feet
9/10 wt tfo pro spey 15 feet
8/9 tfo deercreek spey 13.6 feet

If I kept the 8/9 deercreek spey, 4 weight great bay rods isinglass, 2 weight great bay winding brook, and 7 weight emg and never bought the others and used the money for casting and fly fishing lessons I would actually be a decent fisher. And my loops wouldn't be the shape of a basketball.
