They're simply amazing and they sell for $250.
I agree with Cilff.
I've cast the BVK in a 9 wt. and used it for Stripers in Maine and it's a very nice rod; particularly for the money. I think that Lefty spent a lot of time on this rod before he let his initials go out on the blank.
This rod, in the 8 wt. version, also did very well against the high dollar rods in the recent shootout competition that George Anderson put together.
