I have the 7'9'' Avid , and really enjoy using it .Hands down my favourite for the past few years has been a 3 wt Avid St Croix I picked up from Mingo.
Love the feel of that baby and it has landed me many, many fish. Been lost in the Cedar only to be found again the next morning ... great karma.
That being said, the new Sage 379 LL I picked up over the winter is fast coming my new favourite, but it has yet to establish any significant karma with/for me. Will probably come with my soon-to-be trip to the Elk river in BC.
