two other decent and cheaper rods are the loomis cross current (not the glx cc) and the redington cps. the cps is very lightweight, but they don't make it anymore. I think the current cpx series is the same thing. I have the cross current in a 6wt and the redington in an 8wt if you ever want to cast them. I've never cast a st. croix that I didn't like.
