Just bought a TFO Lefty Kreh Signature Series myself last month and love it!. It's a 5wt (9ft), and is plenty of rod for trout here in Tn as I was told by the shoppe keep. I also own a White River-Hobbs Creek 8wt (9ft), and was my only rod for a long time, it's great in my opinon for largemouth, smallies, stripers, and was my only rod for trout until the TFO. I can tell a difference in just a few uses of the TFO's better quality build than the White River. Dont get me wrong, I do love my 8wt as well, and I love a great deal, just keep in mind that when it comes to rods/reels/ect. you do get what you pay for imho . I'm sure that the rods I own wont be the last, and one can never have too many. Hope this helps you.
