Anyone had any experience with a tfo axiom? I was looking at those as they are not outrageously priced and i have heard good things about them.

Re: Your Favorite line??

It has it's advantages beyond making long casts and agreed, i don't think i've ever casted that far except in the yard.

Re: Recommendation please

I have a zero gravity rod, although it's a helios, and i love it. I didn't realize they had them on sale, if they have one in your size i would go for that.

Try one of orvis' superfine rods, although i'm not sure they make them in 2 piece.

Also, go look at temple fork outfitter's site, they have lots of rods and, although i haven't used one,...
