O.K. so we have got the Loomis Cross Current, the Sages Xi2 and RplXi, and the Scott HP and S3S rods. On those I can lay my hands on as we have dealers of those in Holland. On the others it will be difficult as I have not heard of any dealers over here.
Still no news from the Loomis fans, TFO's or the Dan Craft rods. I do expect all of these brands to have great rods. Btw my own experience is that good rods do not have to be expensive ones, but they can be. Also I feel that a superfast rod is not necessary to be the best casting one although I am a quite fast caster. I'm often using Gatti rods IM6 and higher modulus ones though the last one makes me nervous if using Clousers)
