LL Bean Streamlight 2-handed Rods

To all the 2 handed rod enthusiasts out there,

I am looking for a 2 handed fly rod to fish the Piscataqua River and the NH coast this year.

I had a great year fishing this area last year but I will admit that my best days in the Piscataqua were in the kayak - I was not as successful fishing the rips from shore with the fly rod. I need to bang out longer casts and I want to be able to mend line better in some very speedy rips.

Do you guys think that the Bean Streamlight 2 hander is a good rod to start out with for these endeavors?

At $195 it fits my budget pretty well. I need another $500 rod like I need a hole in the head. I also need a good warranty. I broke 3 fly rods (all on fish) in the last 2 years!

If not the Bean rod then what rod would you recommend and why?

I welcome any and all recommendations and I am looking for some advice before I try to cast some rods and make my final decision.

Thanks,

Mike
