You and I haunt the same places (re:Gadsden)
GREAT Folks! For all i know we have been in there at the same time.
The combo of gift cards and such means that I'll be trading with LRO...
Torn loyalties here...The place you are referring to is near and dear to my heart but doesn't take Orvis Gift Cards, nor do they offer quite the selection of alternatives as our LRO friends.
The BIIx seemed a bit faster than the TFO Pro, but it could have been me.
May have to buy the rod at one and the reel at the other just to keep things fair...too bad I can't afford the BIIx...no question where I'd get that
