Default Nympho Five Weight

Does anyone have any experience with the Thomas & Thomas NS Five Weight Fly Rod?

Looking for something to mainly just use with an indy/nymph rig on rivers in West Michigan and beyond...

I used to own and fish a Horizon II in the same length/weight and LOVED it, curious how this NS compares to it and any other rods you may be able to compare it to...

Thank You

I have not fished it but I cast the T&T NS #5 at Somerset last year and was impressed. It is faster, more powerful yet smoother than Horizon and seemed to me to be a first rate bigger river presentation rod in the Sage ONE category. The Sage felt more deft to me and lighter too. Naturally it has T&T's top-flight finish craftsmanship, arguably the best wrap coatings, cork shapes and reel seats among factory rods.
