Default Re: tfo rods..what's the difference?

I too am in the market for one of these rods. My buddy just bought a 9' 6 weight BVK for trout, and he loves it. I have takin her for a spin and although I don't think you can beat the price I will stick with my Sage VXP for trout, which if any of you guys have cast it is a beautiful peice of fishing machinery. However, I am looking for a 9' 8 weight for Red Drum and Sea Trout and I am wondering about the fighting capability of the BVK. I have no doubt that it will handle sea trout, however I am wondering about its ability to stand up to 30 inch drum, or false albies or stripers for that matter. Anybody had any experience fighting these fish with a BVK. Also permit, snook, bone's, or mahi on this rod. I would like to find a solid multi saltwater species rod. I am set on an 8 weight because the majority of my fishing will be for reds, trout, and stripers inshore, but any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
