Those light rods are presentation casters for short distances and small fish. As a native Texan, I've wanted to like the TFO's but I always seem to pass them up. If you want a light, moderate action rod that will throw some line but make a smallie feel like a monster, I'd suggest 4 wt like a Redington CT which can be had for ~$80 right now (fishwest.net) and includes the rod tube that a TFO doesn't. I have the 8' 3wt 6pc, what a cool rod?

Big fan of the Redington's and their warranty!
Thanks for the tip - I just ordered a 6pc 3 wt from fish west. I wanted a light wt short rod that I could stow in my jeep so I could hit streams anywhere anytime.
