What are people's thoughts on a TFO Lefty Kreh Professional 2 vs the Imperial? That rod is significantly cheaper and I could complete the outfit for a lot less money then.

I'm glad someone brought up backpacking rods. I just ordered a 7' 3" 3 piece 4/5 weight bamboo rod. I feel like a kid the night before Christmas. Should be in in about 2 weeks.

I think a 4 or 5 weight is perfect for backpacking and small streams. I'm not a fan of anything less than a 4 weight only because it becomes too specialized. I always fear hiking in, and finding that the stream I was looking for is wider or faster than I imagined, or it's windier than I predicted. I guess the 4/5 weight is like a security blanket for me.

On another note, I do love St. Croix rods. I have a 9' 6 weight Legend that I fish with a WF7 for smallies on the Delaware.

Awesome....I would anticipating that rod big time. I was going to go 3 weight but I think I am going to make it a 4 weight in the TFO Professional 2. It should be pretty awesome.
