Default Re: Any 10wt suggestions for a poor caster?

I've had an older Colton 10wt and currently have a St. Croix Avid. Surprisingly, I felt that the Colton was slower than the Avid. Now, it was an older Colton so that may make the difference.

The Avid is still rather slow enough and not too demanding. I would put in some practice, tho. Start with something manageable, like a 5wt and work up. IMO, the 10 is not something you want to be out all day slinging around like it was a 4wt. Again, my opinion, but if you are saltwater fishing, you usually doing sight fishing, not "prospecting". So you need to learn to get the fly to where you want it on a single cast.
