i just talked with lewie. i could save a once with lighter rod, but will be sacrificing durability.

Send a PM to BigBlue. He is fishing some of the Denali rod's and I know he fishes a 12ft a lot. From what he has told me they are really light and strong. Saw a post where when one guy called them the offered him 30% off list. Don't know that for a fact and also heard Grizzly was stocking some of them.
