Re: TFO BVK or Mangrove?
The BVK weighs 3.2 and the Mangrove 4.1. Notice also the graph TFO puts next to each rod. The Mangrove graph indicates it is stronger in the lifting column.
Now..haven't casted the mangrove..but own a 8 weight BVK and it is about the sweetest casting 8 weight I've ever held.
The increased lifting...and the increased weight...indicate to me it has a bigger
Butt, which is exactly why I hated the TICR.
