Fellas,

I am getting a new rod. It will be one of the listed in 9`AFTMA 5. So far so good.

I will also be throwing them this afternoon at my dealers, which should help.

But you can never have better advice than that of someone having used a rod for a while. So, can anyone give me any information about any of the rods?

Thanks

Andy

I waited long enough now and made up my mind. I ordered the GEM MKII smuggler.

I cast it and the ANGEL both in 9` AFTMA 5. The Angel is a weapon. Distance casting is written all over it. But casting anything shorter than 15 yards is a b....
The GEM has much more feel to it. Wonderful casting tool, as far as I can tell from throwing it for 15 minutes in a parking lot.

Will post more info later, if there`s any interest.
