hi guys!

here i am in BRAZIL, interested on buying a 4 pc rod, 5wt...

I intend to flyfish for 3 pound peacock bass...and no
subtle fly presentation is required! LOL

well, i have 3 options...
what do you say about them?
which one do you think is the best?

HELP ME , please! LOL

here they are:

A) TFO "professional" 9' 5wt 4pc $99


B) Elkhorn ED905-4 9' 5wt 4pc $100


C) St. Croix PF8045 8' 4,5wt 4pc $90

I'd recommend a St. Croix rod, but why are you looking at the 8 ft model instead of the 9 ft model like you are for the other two rods? It's available in 8'6 and 9' lengths too.

Also the 2 piece is $90, but the four piece is $110.

the 3 rods listed are some that i have found to buy.

and shipping would be not so expensive as it is from regular
shops.

other than that, i think an 8' rod wouldn´t be a problem to me.


thanks for your reply, ok?
