So give me a light fly rod with low swing weight that is sensitive and yet durable, resists twisting, has a great warranty at a low price and I'll be happy as a pig in mud.
Good stuff. I think that there are people in the industry that are letting hype and marketing get the best of them over what's actually good for the rods.

Gary Loomis once said, "I can make you a rod you can't break, but you wouldn't want to fish with it." What's going on in some respects is the polar opposite. They are making some rods that if you fish with them, are destined to break.
