Default Re: For Bonefish, Bass and surf 8wt rod

S&S, you're not going to put in a good word for the Albright EXR at their current $180 price? I though you might say it was better than the Access at less than the price of a Clearwater. I can't say so, because I don't know enough about them.

The Loomis NRX came out on top in the 2011 Yellowstone Angler 8 wt shootout, but that was before the H2 and One were introduced. My go-to 8 wt is an early 1990's Loomis IMX that is so nice I have never felt the need to upgrade it, so I'm inclined to trust the Yellowstone opinion. Hard to imagine that either the Orvis or Sage would be a whole $250 better than a $600 NRX, even if they are newer.
