Try contacting Len Codella...he used to own T&T back in the 1980s, I think.

Don't want to get my chops busted for listing his Web site, so just do a Yahoo search using his name.

Good Luck,

You may want to consider a powerful 7-weight to go along with your 9. These two rods make a great combo, although I think most would go the 8 and 10 weight route, which is fine, too.

Hey Moose,

I own both the rods, although not in the weights you mentioned. The Boron IIx from Winston is an exceptionally lightweight and sensitive rod. It is not necessarily a fast-action rod,...

Hi ArkFlyer,

Just about anything would work, so a lot will depend on what you enjoy using. If pressed to identify the "ideal" rod for your situation, I think an 8'6" 4-weight would be tough to...

Benny, did you buy a Helix yet? These are great rods. You can cast the entire line, but they still load easily in close. Fairly light, forgiving tips which allows for a relaxed casting stroke, yet...

I agree with the recommendation for T&T. Of course, you should cast a few to see what you like.

The new Horizon II 10-weight is a very, very impressive rod. Fast and powerful!

Good Luck,

Hilarious report! Well done!! I especially like the "...with the speed of a small spider monkey" part.

I have the Xi2 in an 8-weight and it's a fine rod. I like the fact that it's a four-piece, and I like the action a bit better than the softer RPLXi, though don't find it to be any smoother than its...

Those Pate reels are great. The good thing about a well-built reel like this is that you can pick them up used, clean them up or even send them to the factory to have be refurbished, and...

Anyone using one of the Sage 3400 or 3500 saltwater reels? Are these reels as well made as their rods?
