I have a mint RPL+ 790-2. In the heavy weight rods group, the RPL+ added stiffness seems OK (though still one of the stiffest rods I've ever used). Never casted one on a small weight rod but would expect the same feel? I've tried the Circa in the 5 weight and it wasn't to my liking. Others listed are nice options, but I've already got the 5vers I want. Thanks.
