    I know where you can get a 5wt 4pc 9' Loomis Metolius for 200.00, which destroys both rods mentioned above. Plus if you break it, Loomis doesn't repair rods for 50$, they give you a BRAND NEW rod entirely!

    Now thats something to think about.

    PS, the ticrx is a tank.

    Well I went and purchased from a Local Fly Shop.
    I was giving the opertunity to cast a few other rods.
    So Far (it could be phsycological)but this just Sage Laugh felt great!

    Now that you mention the repair that Loomis- IS that TRUE?

    'Tis true. You call them and tell them which rod you broke. They take your CC# over the phone and put a new rod in the mail that same day. When it arrives, you put the broken rod in the packaging the new rod came in and ship it back. So, you get your new rod before you send them your old rod.
