I saw this thread last night. It was about St.Croixs new rod made just for women called the Avid Pearl. I haven't personally used a St.Croix, but they seem to have a very good reputation. Hope this helps.

i use a st .croix and love it, the biggest thing i like about it is its pretty durable ive accidently stuck its tip in the ground or into a tree a couple times and nothing has broke, i had a sage that i did that to wasnt even very hard and the tip snapped...but maybe it was a defecitve tip idk

I was almost certain there had to be fly rods specifically built for women considering the number of women I see taking up this sport.

I'm afraid, though, if I bought her a pink rod, she'd beat me with it. I once offered to buy her a rifle with a pink stock. She said if I did, she'd give me a running start and drop me before I reached 100 yards. I took that as a "no thank you".

Again, I appreciate the info.

Bob
