Default Fenwick 6wgt Aetos Rod

Can't remember if I added this before.
I don't have any expensive rods: zebec 6/7wgt 8ft. gamester(1974), Redington 5WGT and a Cabela's 8 wgt.
Thinking of splurging , $200 for the Fenwick Aetos 6 wgt, I already have a 6/7 Hedron reel from 1974.
Any advice appreciated.

The BVK is getting long in the tooth, in my book, the Aetos in 6, 5 & 4 is the new BVK.

Since Aetos isn't a pro shop only model, if price is an issue at all, clean out your cookies and search, then re-search Amazon for a few days. You might be able to do better on the price. I've seen them come up for around $130...might be from a new seller, but your purchase should be backed by Amazon.

Good Luck, Dave

Excellent rod, especially for the money. Also, look up the redington Vice, and echo base.

Great rods, but also look at the Redington Vice for $199.
