Ya, I kinda forgot that one -- like you say, it's the biggest advantage -- just pick it up and flip it out. I occasionally share a stretch of water with a single-hander user and the one thing I always notice is that I'm halfway through my drift while they're still false casting and fiddling.

If you guys could've see Dave's little Loop 7/8 bent double by an average sized Grand River steelie, then there wouldn't be any doubt about fighting fish on them.
