The Professional is a fast action rod, right? How long have you had it, Mark, and what is your fishing experience/ability, if I may? I ask because I am considering buy this blank and building up the rod for my brother who is just a beginner to fly casting. He's been at it for a few years but not with the same vigor, shall we say, as some of us with the lifelong affliction! Anyway, he's been using some short, heavy Cabelas combo and I'd love to put a light, fast yet responsive 9 or 8 1/2' 5 wt in his hands. But I haven't casted it yet.

Thanks!

Personally I would check out the Allen & Company Nano Ti series. These rods are in the same class as some companies $700+ rods (think Orvis Helios) and Justin the owner is a sponser of this forum. He gives forum members very good discounts on already excellent prices. I've ordered two of these rods a 9' 5wt and a 9' 6wt. and should recieve them in the next couple days or so with couple of his Trout series reels. I already own a couple of his reels a Alpha series and a Trout series and they are of the same quality as the Abels I used to own at a 1/4th the price price of the Abels. Allen & Co. warranty is simple if it brakes send it in and Justin will fix or replace it!

Thanks, FlyBum, I am in touch him Justin. I'd just as soon buy a rod from an actual person doing quality work, and right here in the NW. There is a post in the classifieds for the new Nano Ti

I have just the rod your talking about, just got it around xmas. I bought it because of the warranty. I have a 3,4,5 wt pro series rods. I've never fished with anything else so I can't give any comparisons.

My first quality fly rod was was the TFO Professional in 9' 5wt. I used it from the time I was a pretty terrible caster, until now. The warranty is awesome, it doesn't get any better than "no fault" $25 fixed in a matter of days.

Dean_MT; It served me very well as a huge step up from my junk Bass Pro rod. Like I said, it serves me well even now; a decent caster with 5 years under my belt. I still use it and have never felt that it was below me. It is a decent all around rod. I fished plenty of dries and it has a little backbone to double-nymph etc. It is also the biggest rod I have, so I cast all my big night flies on it without too much trouble. Size 2 dear hair, articulated stuff. If I only had $150 to own one rod I would do it again in a heartbeat. It is a med-fast in most peoples opinions. I think that is what they advertise it as on their website.

I wouldn't call it fast, and I'm not sure what you mean by responsive exactly (feel?). But I always felt comfortable with it and developed a good relaxed stroke. I'm no expert, so all I can really offer is my personal experience with it; it was very easy to get comfortable with as a rookie caster.
