Re: All around 4wt
Randy, The ONE was designed using the Gold as its development line. I have tried Grande on it and it dulls its responses quite obviously. If you flex the one piece Zeniths beside their 4-pc. counterparts, you will be surprised how different their tapers are. Zenith and ONE are designed by two of the hippest rod designers of our time and a good caster could easily build his entire trout quiver between Zenith and ONE and not even sample anything else...with the possible exception of Rajeff's NRX.

Another line that does work well with ONE and Zenith too is the seminal SA "Mastery Expert Distance" line. Its name aside, it is a great presentation line designed by fly line and casting expert, Bruce Richards, and was the first WFL line to feature a 25' attenuated rear taper. I intend to test the Cortland "Trout BOSS" on these rods this Spring too.
