Hi Mosca,

Unless TFO has redesigned the TiCrx rod it will be faster than the TiCr. A few people prefer the TiCr finding the TiCrx too fast.

Vsyogi, living in Florida you need to think about your requirements for a saltwater rod. As you improve and develop your casting skills you will find a rod that feels stiff now, may be perfect later on. Any rod that feels stiff can be tamed by over lining. Make sure you don't judge a rod as too stiff in the fly shop. It may feel entirely different when it is loaded with the proper line and cast.

If you are going to be fishing a lot of Mangrove trees, and there are a lot in Florida, you will find the Predator style of rod very useful. Accuracy and control is more important than distance.

Frank
