Default Re: 3 wt Rod Recommendation (BVK maybe)?

Beulah Platinum - outstanding performance, looks great, might be hard to find.
G. Loomis Pro 4x - little "heavier" in weight, but very smooth. - USA made!

I am not a big fan of the TFO stuff, they cast fairly well, but seem to be a bit fragile with avg. to below avg. componentry. Although their warranty is excellent. The "extension" is an interesting idea, although I haven't heard how the rod casts with it deployed.
Thanks for the suggestions!

I need to find a fly shop in my area with a decent rod selection that will also allow me to cast a few rods.
