I was casting it on a pond with an air temp of 65 degrees, so I cannot speak to cold performance, and didn't have to pay any attention to flexibility. I never thought anything like "gee this is a bit stiff". It did float very well so it picked up off the water nicely. Water was very clear so getting gunked up wasn't possible. I was just hoping it would cast great.

Thank you for your inputs James, now I guess I have to buy a Hardy reel to make it a full English setup.

I cast a loop cross s1 6 weight again today, with the exceed line. I cast the whole line. Smooth line, for sure!

How is the taper different from the Rio Grand? I know nothing about lines etc, but do own the 9' #4 zenith with a SA sharkskin GPX #4 and not sure if i LOVE it. I heard the Grand has a more aggressive taper than the GPX so its easier to cast longer without having a lot of line in the air. Therefore I'm thinking about either the Rio Grand or this airflo one, if its similar to the grand. Since im more of a beginner than a pro, its said to be easier to cast with aswell. Just afraid it can be a little to heavy and maybe spook the fish when fishing dry
