I decided I'm getting a 4wt next instead of replacing my dinky old 6wt. I've been seriously debating this very question. I really like what I've heard about both rods now, but I'm leaning toward the Echo 1 (classic???) 8' 4wt. But then, I'm in dfw so in the event that I did break a TFO rod, I could just drive it in instead of worrying about shipping costs.
Could one of these 4wt rods throw my larger size 2 clousers and poppers for LMB or are these rods just too weak for these flies?
