    Yeah I saw that. If the Corto 610 was available I would say without a doubt it is by far the best for the money hands down. It may become available before that deal goes away on the 22nd. The Lunakia is a fine rod no doubt. The Finezza Prototype 2017 really is in another dimension in my opinion.....and many others too. I need to fish a lot more with both the Lunakia and Finezza. But.....with the Finezza one gets Torzite guides which is probably the difference in the price. Not to mention the high tech blank......although the Lunakia has a great blank also and a tubular tip vs the solid tip for the Finezza. The Finezza has....as I measure....an 11mm butt compared to what looks like 9mm for the Lunakia. I think everyone who goes down the JDM road and wants to spend the money deserves a high end Graphiteleader rod. But I dont want to give up my Lunakia either....but that is the collector coming out in me....LOL. One thing fur sure you wont go wrong no matter your decision. I am pretty sure the Finezza will be better suited for temperate bass. The few times Ive fished the Finezza I have been blown away by the sensitivity of the rod. All of these rods are sensitive but it fishes.....to borrow a word from Allsorts.....steely. In the end if I had to pick between the Lunakia or Finezza.....with the Corto being unavailable......I would get the 17 Finezza Prototype. Maybe Chris and or Allsorts will see this and chime in.

    I sent an email to Sanpei-Japan about a week ago and was told 18 Corto should be available sometime in April.
    If you cast it they will come.

    I haven't fished with either a Finezza or a Corto, so I cannot compare them with the Lunakia. I will add, though, that the Lunakia does have a solid tip model (LK632S-LMLS, which is 6'3" light medium light, 3 lb line max, 3g lure max).

    Got a 6’1” corto on the way... I am going to use it as my smaller stream rod for trout and I am going to do summer river wading with it for gills, smallies, and red eyes... I am excited to lay eyes on it... thinking of pairing it with a 1000 series stradic ci4 or the exist that is on its way... ordered some root beer float trout magnets and looking forward to trying them... work just seems to get in the way...
