Will have to try the BIIT
Donít Dave, itís fatal mate, youíll yearn for one, next to the SLT itís a proper dry fly rod.

Donít listen to Steven, Dave try one but donít use nimphs on it untill you caught atleast 100 wbt on a dry on one. otherwise the fishing Gods will forever hold a grudge.

I wasnít a big fan of the 2x as you know Dave but luckily we all like different things. I think the 3x 386-4 is a Peach though

Although I'm after the 8ft, I might not turn my nose up at either of the other two if offered. Being a 'completist' (aka an obsessive) I'l probably end up with all three again!

I might have added that I'd consider a Sage TXL, the old three-piece, in 7'10" 4wt... I really liked that rod too.

bought a (n expensive) line for my #3 TXL in the same length, didn't like it - but if fitted the SLT in a 3# (same length) - that hasn't been used because I couldn't find a line that suited - perfectly. i guess some things just need their time.

Good to hear Hans, no SLT should sit idle.
