one Winston rod was all it took for me to know I was never buying another! And I have one that was actually built by Winston. Look at Loomis, Sage, or Scott. The Echo Carbon rods are much better than most rods under $300, but if your looking in the $700 range the Loomis is the way to go. I own five four weight rods and find myself using a Scott G series 80% of the time
