Re: mid priced 5 wts.
I have an 8'6" 5wt fli and love it. Best casting rod i ever owned, but i have only owned 4 different rods. I has a lot of feel you can really feel it load. I have a sage launch but the fli is way better. It is the only rod from your choices i have cast. I have had no reason to look for another rod.
I don't always fly fish but when I do I prefer salt water. Stay salty my freinds
