Default Thoughts on Winston GVX?

Does anyone have experience with this rod? An acquaintance of mine may have an opportunity to get a good deal on one. It appears to be the choice in between the entry level Passport which is getting great reviews and the high end BIIIX. Is there any compelling reason to spend the extra $$ over the Passport from a performance standpoint?

In my opinion yes. For the most part, when it comes to rods from top end rodmakers, you get what you pay for. I always suggest that casting a rod several times before buying it. If you cannot tell the difference between the rods then buy what you want. unfortunately for me when I cast rods, I tend to really want the good ones.
