I had to jump on this, I couldn't pass it up. This was my dilemma:
Buy a TFO Pro 9' 7 WT ($159), Orvis Battenkill Mid Arbor IV ($149), and SA Mastery line ($47) from LRO. Totalling $355, it kinda defeated my "cheap, reliable 7 WT" option. I need to support LRO in order to ensure they are around for many moons to come, but I just couldn't put up that kind of cash.
I ended up buying a St. Croix Imperial 9' 7 WT, Redington Crosswater reel, and SA Mastery line for $242. I'm not too big on the Redington, so I'm planning on selling it so I can get the Orvis Mid Arbor IV.
