Default Re: St.Croix Avid Series

I have an Avid in 9ft 5wt. It is a bit slower than what I'm used to. I've had other Avids and struggled to make them work they way that I wanted (one being an 8ft 4wt.). But, on a trip last fall, I literally stopped in the middle of the stream and asked myself "What does this rod want from me to work for me effieciently?" I changed by casting stroke right there and it came into it's own.

The Avids are excellent rods at a great price point. Were I you, I'd get one and throw some line.
