Re: HELP...need a new rod...suggestions please
While you're at LRO, check out the St. Croix rods. IMHO the Avids are very comparable if not perhaps a bit nicer than the TFO's and cost only slightly more than the Finesse (sp?) series of TFO. The Avids also come with a lifetime warrenty and rod tube.
