Default Re: St Croix Avid 7ft 9in?

I have an Avid 7'9" 3wt and like it a lot. I think it will prove to have the extra backbone you want without giving up a soft cast. It casts well close in but has enough moxie to throw 30 - 40 foot casts. I've cast a four wt superfine and I think the avid has a similar action. A nice thing about the avid is that they have been around a while and you can often find an excellent deal on ebay or other auction sites.
