However, the z-axis bends to the cork so the trout can really pull on it, if it was a 5 weight sage TCX it would be overkill for trout.

The prospector has a faster tip recovery and smoother casting stroke than dually. The dually flexes deeper and is a more relaxed stroke.
Sounds like the dually is almost similar to the beulah classic 5/6 that i have but 3inches longer and lighter for the 4wt.
