Hardy Zenith Beginner Friendly?
So in my many hours of searching and debating on what i want my first set up to consist of, I ran across a pretty good deal on a Hardy Zenith 9' - 5WT.
The thing I'm starting to wonder about is did i make the right choice? I worry that it my be a little to technical of a rod, requiring more skill than I have to benefit from its advantages. Also after reading more reviews and thinking about the types of streams and rivers I'm probably going to be fishing In the VA/MD/PA area. I'm thinking that maybe I should look into something a little slower and not quite as powerful.
It seems that some guys think the Zenith is more of a big river rod, meant to really get some line out there. Their are also people that say the rod behaves well up close so I guess I'm looking for some good advice. Maybe I could (or should) pick up a less expensive rod.
