What do you guys think about the Gallatin Onyx 7 weight rod? I could get one on ebay for 60 bucks, do you think that is a good deal? What other 7/8 weight rods do you recommend?

Thanks,
Ryan

I've got one. It was the first rod I bought. For the money, it was a great way to get started. There is some talk about this rod, recommending that you line-up a weight, but I disagree. I have a 7 weight Onyx and it can be sluggish with an 8 weight sink tip. Stick with true line weights.

The guy on eBay (microjigger) is now selling the next generation from Gallatin. They are IM-8 rods.
