    For your purposes, "butter smooth" is nice but not necessary. You will be using tippets in the 15-20 pound class, and a bit of start-up inertai is not that critical. A drag that can take some abuse IS important, especially on the 10wt., where you may be tempted to address small tarpon, jacks, or other bigger gulf species in Louisiana. The Galvan and Nautilus's are certainly up to the task, given the right model, I have no experience with the Kracken. If you are willing to lay out the dough, I would throw Islander and Hatch into the mix. Very good deals can be had on auction sites.

    Oh, and the BVk is an extremely light weight rod. You will want a reel on the feathery side to balance it.

    I have the Redington Rise in the 3/4 and the 5/6, really like them. I've had the 5/6 for about 4 years now and it's bulletproof no issues, even after very salty sea of cortez use. I have the Galvan T-8, but haven't had a chance to use it yet. Captain Kirk got me a good deal over at D.S..
