    I seem to remember as a kid in the late sixties all I ever got was the yearly Orvis and Dan Bailey catalogs.....and, boy, did I memorize them!
    there is so much useful information nowadays that even I am a better fly fisherman in spite of myself
    newbies are so lucky with the wealth of knowledge available.

    If you prefer a softer rod go for Asquith, if you love indicator fishing go for the NRX+. Both can deliver high line speed, but NRX+ is the real beast for distance and do not surrender when comes to loading longer head (5 on 5).

    I am not surprised the next Asquith iteration comes with a '+', that would be splendid.

    I fish an NRX#5 (along with a few other 9'/#5's) very happily. I've been impressed by the Asquith's I've had experience with and naturally look forward to leaning about new +, probably not before Edison. But I hear you, I like to say my favorite new rod is to be introduced...next season.

    Difference between Asquith and NRX + is that the former is like a finally tuned Italian sports car and the latter an American muscle car

    Both hit top speeds but one is more elegant and refined
