    I found a ZXL on a clearance rack last year here in the Northwest, that is why I am kind of surprised they are coming out with this rod I thought the ZXL didn't really do that well?

    I've cast both a 590LL and a 589-4 CIRCA and they aren't the same rod. The LL feels a bit stiffer in the middle section but the CIRCA seems to have higher line speed.

    One of the last things I need is another rod. I don't even want to cast a new one. The ones I have work fine to catch fish and I'm more into catching fish than casting line. I didn't have this attitude when I first started fly fishing... I thought I had to keep up with the latest and greatest... that became damned expensive.

    So, I'm content with my old Sages, Winston and new TFOs. (but my favorite rod is a old Orvis Clearwater from a beginner's kit -- which makes it my least expensive rod)

    Having new rods around is kind of annoying when you like all your other rods just fine. I have decided I will not be purchasing a rod until 2015, only trades and sales are allowed. I still have an LL 4wt bought in November that hasn't seen water since other rods I have are more suitable to winter fishing.
