Default Re: Hardy Featherweight, Lamson Guru, Orvis BattenKill LA, or Orvis CFO or

Unless you're in a hurry I would shop eBay for a vintage / mint condition CFO IV. I use one on an old 9' PM-10 and it's a beautiful thing. The new rod you have will be a little lighter than my old one and this is good. My PM-10 is still a little tip heavy once you string the line up. With the lighter shaft on yours the CFO IV should be about perfect. If you choose to go with the Hardy look to the LRH lightweight rather than the Feather. It is a good match to 9' 5 weights.
