The Biix has more backbone, so I think it is more flexible in how you can use it. I had that exact rod and was able to throw everything from tiny dry flies to small streamers with it. I think the TXL is more limited to handling dry flies - just my opinion.....let me clarify - you can throw small streamers with the TXL, but it is more difficult to cast them very far.
