I had the pleasure of working in a flyshop several years ago for about a year. In that time, I cast every rod we had on the wall. There were a few <$200 rods that cast very well with my casting style, and a few >$600 rods that I would never fish, but we sold a bunch of. One gentleman bought what I though was the best 8'6" 5 wt I'd ever cast - then 2 months later wanted to return it because he hated it. I think it boils down to casting style/experience and preference.

Les - it was a Winston, but not pre-IM6 (though I would gladly give up 3 of my rods for one). The rod just felt sweet - it nearly cast itself. When I was able to get one myself, I chose the 4wt thinking it would be similar - we never had one of those in stock. It's close, but not the same.
