If you like a double taper, I would stick with it, but as for presentation, there is really no difference in the front tapers. The double taper will be helpful in the case of a big mend or a really long roll cast.
A RIO Grand or a SA GPX (or what ever the new equivelant is) would be a good bet. You have a couple of really good shops in your area. Go to Bill Kiene's and see what the recomend.
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.
