The LLBean Silver Ghost always catches my attention at the store, and I believe it is well reviewed, but I have never cast one. I would certainly go try one if I was in the market, though.

Winstons don't have lifetime warranties?

Yep, looks like they do.

"Every new Winston boron/graphite and/or graphite fly rod or blank is covered by our original owner Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee against breakage or manufacturer's defects. This warranty is available only to the original owner of boron/graphite and/or graphite fly rods or blanks purchased from an authorized Winston Dealer. This warranty covers, at Winston's option, the repair of the original rod or the replacement of the rod with an equivalent rod only. The warranty is subject to the original owner completing and returning either the warranty card or Warranty Registration Form PDF to Winston within 10 days of purchase. "

Conditional on the warranty card being sent in, but maybe they wouldn't hold you to that, provided you can provide some other proof of purchase.

I cast the Clearwater in an 8 recently vs a BVK and bought the BVK. Both seemed like really good rods for the price but the BVK felt like it had a bit more oomph once I had about 30' of line out. Have heard pretty mixed reviews about the ion.

There was a comment about the TFOs being heavy. The BVK is anything but heavy (very light), but it may or may not be the too you are looking for. It will be great for tossing flies, but maybe not the best lever arm for puling up huge fish from the depths. Depends what you are looking for

While the Winston may not be under warranty, they will repair it for a reasonable cost.

I have a cabela's HDT in the 10wt flavor. Now that I have the right line on it, I really like it. Definitely not the Sage 10wt I've fished with, but it's a stout rod that's for sure. Not too heavy either.

I wouldn't want to go from a Boron to an HDT though...

+1 for trying to get them to fix it
