Default Best Trout Rods ?

What's your best trout rod ever ? I don't know much about glass or boo but my vote is for the Orvis Far&Fine 7'9" 5wt. But Im fishing streams in the eastern US. What's yours ? List as many as you like

The rod that my father built and gave to me on my 16th birthday
A Lamiglass 7.5' 4wt.... it was a pretty spiffy rod at the time and I still use it 40 years later.

Well I just got a Hardy Zenith 9' 5wt that I haven't used yet, but, I'm sure from all that I have read it's a winner. Have a G.Loomis 3wt 8'8" Whispercreek GLX I love. Caught a 16" brown on it last year, that was a ride.
