I agree 100% Ard.
In the "rod" category, it would take me less than 30 seconds to determine if I would even ever use it fishing once. Fly lines - the same - except for the amount of time required to spool two out of three of them up - with the manufacturer's named "weight" of the rod being the middle line weight.
They'd have to pay me way more than they'd want for me to use a rod or line I don't like for even 3 times out fishing with it.
Fishing time is too valuable to mess with nonsense like that.
