Thanks Doug and Pat
You guys have pointed me in a good direction. The good thing about it is that all the rods you mentioned are available to me locally so I can ask to test cast them. I've already test cast a few of them in the parking lot. But that’s very different from standing knee deep or trying to balance on a casting platform with the wind blowing. It’s sometimes scary to make that type of investment without a few good recommendations from guys like you who I consider experts in the field. You’re certainly more knowledgeable than myself.
They all seem like good quality rods. As far as looks go, the G.Loomis Crosscurrent tops them all. I really like what they've done with those rods. If they cast as good as they look then I'm sold. Doug, do you think the present Cross Current models are somewhat close to your GLX Mega?
