I've got that one too, but mine has a CFO III. When I bought it the Orvis guy said it was their most popular rod for Pennsylvania limestone creeks. I think it was Orvis's competitor to Winston's more popular Tom Morgan Favorite. I was sorry when they discontinued it. They come up on eBay from time to time and usually go for very reasonable prices because Orvis never promoted the model very hard and only sold it for a few years.
