If at all possible, cast them both and get the one you like best. Beyond that I have cast any TFO rod, so I can be of no further help.

I cast both of those rods as well as a BVK when I was looking for a 7wt a while back. For me, the BVK was head and shoulders above the other two because of the light weight and fast action. If I had not bought the other two, the Axiom would have been my choice of the other two.

I dont have any local fly shop near me so i cant try any of them. Thats why im relying on others for honest opinions.

Is the bvk faster than the axiom?

Unless you are just sold on the TFO warranty, why not consider an American made Sage response. I see where a certain shop in MT is blowing them out for $225. They have the 9' 6wt with saltwater safe hardware and a fighting butt (691-4 model). Would make a great bass/trout streamer rod.
