I understand the ZXL to be the rod that replaced the SLT - can anyone comment who has fished both rods on their similarities/differences?

Your comments are appreciated!

Hi Mike, both great rods I think, I find my SLT just a touch crisper than the ZXL.
I sold the ZXL a while back as I just wasn't using yet, and the SLT became my go to every time.
Here in the UK the SLT is a much respected rod, more so than the ZXL which can be picked quite often in the used market for less money usually.
It seems to have gained a bit of a cult status here, and I for one wouldn't part with mine.
