Re: TFO BVK or Mangrove?
Cast both and see what works best for you.
I started with the 8wt bvk and it did the job but when I casted the mangrove I immediately traded in the bvk. I got the 6 and 8 wt mangroves I was so impressed.
For me it was a better rod. Its made for very accurate casting
You can tell the quality improvements even in the two hoops that screw upwards to secure the reel (not sure what theyre called)
As for what size I think it depends on what you are targeting. I got the 8wt as it was standard for saltwater fishing but dont know enough to say get one over the other. I can tell you the mangrove is pretty stout and I would not shy away one bit from a upper slot red with it.
Good luck with your decision
