Re: 2013 5-Weight Shootout - The Preview
I cast the #5 Artisan at Somerset and though devine, I like the Zenith better...my buddy craved the Artisan though. It's predecessor the Angel was over a grand as well and though beautiful, hardly rang up sales in the US. DB, Anderson has a marked preference for rods with power but with softer tips too. Hence his downgrade of ONE (I agree with you though). Moucheur, A little birdie whispered in my ear something about wooden reel seats but I can't remember what song it sang. The one on the Artisan is exceptionally attractive.
