I would need to spend more time trying them. It didn't seem to communicate how it was loading, nor did it seem to unload well with anything but a short quick stroke with an optimal line length out of the guides. When cast with the ideal amount of line, the ability to shoot line and get down to business was phenomenal, but when aerializing a longer length, let's say 60 feet, the rod did not seem to communicate it's loadpoints in a way that I am used to with other premium rods.

Much of this is subjective, although I am able to find a comfort zone easily with most rods I've cast from the Temple Fork to the Rplxi. Mysteriously I could not get comfortable with this rod and the dynamic motion of the line did not seem to be "connected" while in transit through the outer extents of a long stroke.

The fun part is more testing!
