If any of you get to the show at the hearnes center stop by tony edgar's booth he has a signature series casting, spinning, & trolling rods that are flat out awesome. I have several b&m poles which will soon be replaced, tony's pole's are well balanced, much lighter and just feel better in your hand plus they are made or im 7 graphite. If you can't make the show check out his bait shop in versailles he has them in stock there.
