Got one.
8' 5# browning gold medallion.
My first and only so far.
Although I might have to justify a 9 ft rod to make it easier in my newly acquired float tube. Maybe a 7#.

Up until recently, I owned a Browning Gold Medalion 7' 4/5. That's a really fun rod to cast, you can really feel it loading which is a great attribute to have in a rod, especially for a new fly angler.

Recently added 2 rods for Salmon. God knows what number I'm up to now.

I agree it does cast nicely. And it has for the past 18 years or so. It has seen lots of action, and expect much more.

Not enough, but if you ask the wife then that's a slightly different story. At the last count, around 15, I think, that does not count the ones in the garage and the attic But I've been around a while
