T&T's website is:

Can't speak for the 11-footer, but their Horizon salt rods are the best I've owned.

A freind from Seattle uses the 12ft 8wt T&T and does very well with it. If you would like some first hand review from him let me know and I will email him cc' you to open a discussion.

I have the 1309 T&T. It is very light for a 9wt but has plenty of power. It throws 150 grain tips with ease and is excellent for floating line work. It is a pretty fast action rod so your timing is more critical especially with a DT line.
I do have concerns about their quality control though. I have had 2 of the snake guides break off. I have a suspicion that they were ground to heavily. But who cares a couple new guides ,some thread and fingernail polish and i am back in business. I'd be interested in selling this rod along with the windcutter for it as soon as i have my new rod built. I could make someone a reasonable deal on it. warentee card and all
