SH,

I typically use a TFO 7'-3" 2-wt finesse rig when fishing in the park, unless I am throwing big junk in the winter. So for reference, that is what my comparison is based on. I have to say that the Superfine Glass Rod was an absolute joy to use. Casts were effortless, and the full flex action was very smooth. Also, when I hooked up with the larger trout, the deep bend that it put into the rod also made fighting the fish a pleasure. If you are in the market for a full flex sweet casting rod, I don't think you can go wrong with the Superfine Glass rod.
