Yeah, it's come up a couple times now. I should pipe down or people will think I have stock in St. Croix... lol. Those BVK rods are just so over-rated.... That's a good point, the warranty usually isn't going to help you on a trip and for sure it won't help you on the water that day.

I know what you mean. My fishing budget is already shot for the year. If this ridiculous winter weather doesn't start winding down soon, I'm going to have to take out a second mortgage.... Instead of fishing, I'm sitting around and looking at fishing equipment. Not good. I'm a sucker for a good marketing line.

PM me if a one-piece rod would work for you.

No pity expected for me if I have to buy a cheaper rod. I am going to Alaska this summer and got a kid going to college this fall. I can still fly fish. Life is good.

Regarding the BVK, they may be over rated. I just know a few friends of mine on this forum have casted them, own or have owned them and like them a lot. Guys I know that don't fall for hype too much. Anyway, my mind stays open for now. Just know I want a fairly fast rod, that I can afford, and not so heavy it will trash my elbows that are prone to a little tendinitus.

Your BVK opinion is noted Lab, and the breakage issue is important to me, especially until I have a backup rod. This rod will not throw weighted streamers, but it may need to keep a musky out of the brush pile someday. I can see myself choking up on the bat at that moment. I'll post rod carnage PICs lol

My 9wt is a TFO Professional II that I use for Kings. I had to turn some fresh ones and it did the job. Not an expensive rod and I was able to cast some pretty big egg-sucking leeches easily.

Just an alternative in case you want to spend a little less money.

This is a classified ad that morphed into a general rod discussion. I'm flexible at the moment. My current favorite rod of the day is a St Croix Legend Ultra, 9 or 10 WT.

Bought a used later model St Croix Legend Ultra 9WT 9-0. Musky rods break so a backup 10WT is probably prudent, but it is no longer going to keep me from fishing so I can wait for a great deal to come along.

Check out Colton rods, I have a 10 wt Tradewinds that has tangled with a 70 lb tarpon. He usually has a sale a couple times a year for 40% off. I also have a Colton Tradewinds XS 8 wt and a Slipstream 4 wt. They are nice rods at a good price. I also have high end Sage and Hardy rods, the Colton's hold their own.

Didn't mean to derail. I have not advertised, but I have a 9ft 10wt 3pc Avid that I bought for salt, but never used it. It's a long story, but there it is.
