Re: Winston has ruined me!!
Yup your screwed! haha once you get a taste of qaulity graphite its game over, nothing less will do. The same thing happened to me brotha, only it was a sage z-axis that ruined me. Listen, if your looking for inexpensive steelhead gear, the TFO deer creek series of switch and spey rods are damn good for the money. Also the new series of reddington prospector two handed rods are nasty too for around $350. The next step up would be a buelah spey rod at around $450-550, these rods cast like $700+ rods so, price to performance ratio is insane. Mind you, I'm just talking two handers for steelhead and swinging flies. Let me know if you have any more specific questions im a gear friggin' junky who's also in school, so I feel ya. Be good
