Default Re: 2 weight rod?

I recently purchased the Orvis Superfine Touch in 2 wt. It retails for $495, which puts it in the mid-range category. It comes in either 6' or 8' lengths. I got mine for the same reason you stated in your post. It has a soft feel and is rated as a full flex rod. However, I can still get plenty of distance when needed, but it makes for some nice presentations.

It's a very nice little rod. I opted for the 8' version so I can fight the wind that inevitably comes up whenever I fish.
