In addition to media contacts, Straub knows many of the owners and managers of the best and biggest bookstores in Montana. I really like bothas long as I don't use my friends 4 wt. I will use the 10 wt. I don't anticipate using this rod very freuently so I prefer to stay in the price range listed above and would appreciate any additional thoughts from those who have experience with either these rods in a 10wt.

I have not used it yet, but I hear good things about them. Heck, I haven't even taken it out of the case and put it together. I'd make you a great deal on it if you're not dead set on another Winston.
I even have a SA Mastery Series line still in the box for that rod as well. Loren Jensen Active Member.

Cmann, Yours sounds like a good plan to me. I was considering that same rod a couple months ago for infrequent permit and tarpon fishing opportunities. I'm firmly of the opinion that there just aren't many bad graphite fly rods in today's market place even at the lower price points, altho that's where the few bad ones do hang out. However, since any 10 wt or greater is basically a lightweight broomstick with a bit of bend to it, I think the demands for designing heavy weight rods is less than for good trout rods.

Reels, of course, are a different story. It certainly does the job any time I've used it.
I don't have my heart set on another Winston, it just seems like a good deal and I am familiar with the brand. Richard E Active Member.
