Re: St. Croix Bankrobber?

Very true.....but there's one twist, a close friend is also selling a very slightly used (as in 3 outings) for $150...9' model with fighting butt. So many rods so little cash!

The Mangrove has suprised me...it throws a sink tip line and 4-5 articulated streamers with ease. Only downside is the price point quality cork. The bankrobber I held had great components and seemed...

Re: Is Orvis SFT Being Discontinued?

Nope, simply changing hardware and the name to super fine carbon. just to be inline with the glass offering.

Re: Glass VS Graphite

Epics are definitely faster than BH. The Epic 686 is THE rod for streamers/glass. My favorite all around Epic would be the 476. But BH has that soft full flex action. So hard to pick ur poison:)
