Default Re: thinking to venture to the ultralight rod category

If you want to go really small, there's the TFO Finesse Half Weight - 5', $160. This is, from my measurement, a 1 wt.

St Croix has the Imperial 6' 2 wt, $170. However, in one of the shootouts and by my own measurement this is really a 1 wt rod.

I have both.

The TFO has slip rings for the reel holder. The St Croix has screw type.

Weights - TFO 1.3 oz; Imperial 1.8 oz.

Both work well with 1 wt line.
