Default 99 and TCX on sale

If you're looking for something that can cast a VW bug, the Caddisfly in Eugene has these on sale. 99's are $200 off and TCX is $230 off.

I've fished 99's of several wts and found them all to be excellent for nymphing with a ton of weight. No experience with TCX, but they are a pretty green color.

Default Re: 99 and TCX on sale

A friend of mine has a 9wt TCX, and we've used it bass fishing. Well, tried. It's an ultra-fast rod. Get the timing right and it will fling bugs a country mile. Get the timing off, it the bug lands 40 feet away under a pile of line. It just wasn't an easy rod to cast, so we both rely on Z-Axis.

Default Re: 99 and TCX on sale

Thats exactly how the TCX works. Its very not forgiving but when you get it right holy cow it slings some line. Mad River Outfitter's also has them at 40%.

I have a 7wt TCX sitting at the shop for me, Im pretty pumped about adding another to the fleet. I own the 5wt already. Its awesome.
