Some of the top guides around here are using the TFO Mangrove and the Beulah Bluewater. Ive used both for muskies and can vouch. They both can cast a wet sock a country mile. The Mangrove is quite a bit lighter but its my preference of the two.

Mark: I'm sorry, but you are brand new, first post here, we have had bad experiences with someone coming on the forum for the express purpose of selling something and then once the get the money, never deliver the goods and disappear.

I've never caught a musky, but I've spent a lot of time in saltwater. You can't go wrong with a St. Croix rod. American made, great quality, and tough. After breaking TFO rods, my buddies went to St. Croix and never looked back. We dissected the broken BVKs and concluded that they were designed to feel nice and light and to cast a lot of line on the grass behind the fly shop but they aren't made to hold up to a lot of actual use. I don't know much about the rest of their line, but I would steer clear of that model.

I see you are an even guy. I am an odd guy. Someday when we get stocked up on our odds and evens we may be able to trade around and fill in the blanks!

Thanks lab, I have read your other posts on the BVK breakage and that is a big concern. Great warranty or not, it could sure mess up a trip. I do own and like ST Croix rods, but we're in the $500 range for a true Musky rod and I doubt I can do that this year.

A vision big daddy would do you good! VISION - IN FLY FISHING: Rods singles (SH), Big Daddy That's what I'm using! Those scandinavian rods have a pretty amazing flex pattern. They move some flies! These are about $350 and they are more like a $600 rod. http://flymart.ca/default.aspx?ctl=c...roduct_id=1623 has them for $325. They're available within two weeks. I use a 9 weight, but they're available in #10.

Another rod is the loop booster (also a 9 weight), but I have a 450 grain head on it and it turns the flies over, nicely.

I still haven't managed to break my BVK. TFO knows that they break more often than some of their other blanks but still feel that most breaks are avoidable. If you are fishing big fish like a musky the Mangrove is probably a better choice. You are throwing big flies and they hit the rod pretty hard sometimes. And when you get a big fish on, don't try to get extra pressure on the fish by grabbing the rod up on the blank with your free hand...! But you knew that.

I've never caught a musky but have seen people break rods on Salmon that way.
