Default TFO series one fly rod

Just looking for some opinions on this rod. I bought the 9ft 8wt version 2 days ago. I can't decide if I should take it back and swap it for the pro series. There was about $50 difference but wasn't sure if it would be worth the extra money.

It's not so much whether it's a series one or the pro series, it's the action of the blank. This depends on the flex factor of the rod blank you prefer.

I don't know that rod, but I do have 2 TFO Pros and love them. I can't speak to a quality difference, but what I will say is that YOU need to be happy with your purchase. If your happy with it keep it, if not and return is an option...
If you don't like it you wont use it or you will have buyers remorse. Not fun.
Don't worry about labels, try to understand why you like or dislike a rod. Then you can make good decisions.
all the best.

Thanks for all the advice. I went ahead and swapped ou the rod today. Turns out the other combo was discounted more, even though the rod was $50 higher it only cost me $20. There is quite a bit of difference in the feel of the cast. I can feel the rod loading on the back cast more and its much more solid on the forward cast. I can get the same distance as the other rod....its just easier to do it with this one.
