Re: For Bonefish, Bass and surf 8wt rod
My trip to FL is only once a year, so my H2 8wt will be mainly for the bass and the surf here. I might pick up the NRX 7wt in the future. But for now I'll stick with just 2 Orvis rod H1 5wt and H2 8wt. The Sage Xi3 is excellent in all department but too heavy.
As for the reel, I am now open again to the Ross 4 LT and the Nautilus FWX 7/8. However, the Litespeed 3.5 or Velocity 3.5 are still ahead of the reel race.
I thought about the Hardy DD but they are made in Korea. I am buying US made only for fly fishing stuffs.
BEWARE...Once you switched, you can't switch back. :
