Backup rod: St.Croix Avid vs TFO?
Looking for 8-8.5' 5wt as backup rod. Narrowed choices to St.Croix Avid but may consider TFO Finesse or TiCr. Any experience on either or in comparison? Generally like a med-fast rod but need to be able to roll cast as this will mainly be on med. size streams in the Appalachians. Any input appreciated.
