Cabelas has their LST on sale right now , my wife has one I bought her in a 6wt and really likes it, I fish it once in awhile its a good rod. Also check out the forum flyshop for the redington Red's I bought my son a crosswater and its a nice entry level rod, cast pretty nice, teh Red is the next step up
