    No Helios but the 10wt Zero Gravity is awesome!

    Those Superfines are indeed SUPER FINE!

    I've had a chance to use a 4-wt Superfine alongside a new 4-wt Sage Circa, and -- while both are fantastic dry fly rods, I actually found the Superfine a tad sweeter. It seems to have a touch more casting power, without any loss in accuracy, finesse or presentation. A great stick for gently laying tiny dries out for finicky feeders.

    That said, I do like the Circa too -- but at the prices listed above, I'd recommend anyone needing (WANTING) a top-end dry fly rod, grab those Superfines! That 704-4 would be a nice rod for small- to mid-sized waters holding fat cutties. Something like Idaho's upper Kelly Creek or Moose Creek. Even the upper Yakima -- I love that rod up on the section above Bullfrog.

    If I come home with another rod, my wife will toss me. But, you know what I like. If I didn't have a 10 wt. Xi2, I'd be all over that.

    Excellent prices! I would jump on one if my wife didn't have me on a tight budget... something about groceries and paying the bills...

    That's a very good price on the spey rod.

    One of those "blue lines" in the WA, MT,
    Rimblo, you can just call the shop if you want and we can help you out. Leland is out fishing today, although he may respond... I'm not working today either, but anyone there can take care of you.

    What is meant by "new older rods"?
    Does this mean that they are like 5 years old, but were never bought, so they are still brand new?
