I've been fishing an Orvis Superfine 1 wt almost exclusively for the past 12 or so years. I literally wore out the first 1wt I owned, after 100s (maybe 1000s) of hours and 1000s of fish caught. It was one of the original unsanded versions. It was replaced, without question, with the then current sanded 2 piece 1 wt. That rod was noticeably faster than the original. I see that the current model is now a 4 piece. I'm guessing it might be a little faster yet.

The original rod I owned was by far my favorite, wish I still had it, but then, the only way that would happen was to have fished a whole lot less.

I guess the other thing that I find a bit amazing is the price inflation. Of course some of that is probably a result of the no quibble replacement policy Orvis has.
