That's what I think - they're hardly going to make an 8'3" rod in limited numbers for one customer (or any customer for that matter). I'll ping a message to Winston to see if they can confirm.

I had the revered 8'6" 5wt WT and thought it was like a broom handle compared to the GVX and BIIt. Too stiff in the butt compared to the other two. In this respect, I'm obviously an oddball.

If I get the rod referred to on this thread, it'll be with the intention of using it as a 4wt.
