I think many people have gone the same route Erik. I did. Shorter and lighter and shorter and lighter and soon I was chasing big steelhead with a 5wt trout rod on the CW. Loads of fun. Until it wasn't.
One day I grabbed that heavy, old and dusty beast out of the corner of the closet. Still and always a work in progress, made me a better caster and angler while being great fun.
