Congrats on your truly awesome purchase(s) ! I hope I did not offend by insinuating you had an "in" with Scott. I'm just jealous in that even if i could afford all three rods, i could not pull off that purchase and avoid divorce papers

The Radian encompasses a lot in terms of casting feel and power in my opinion. The 5 and 6 line Radians really shine.
I have some questions and comments, bbut will bring them up in the Radian rod thread as to not derail this thread any farther. Your additional input would be greatly appreciated!

I recently saw pics of the new darker finish Lamson Litespeed on a S4 an it looked pretty sweet.
