Bruce - I've been eyeing your greenheart since you posted it a bit ago, but I have a concern that I'm looking for honest input on. The concern is that I believe greenhearts need to be retained in fairly moist environments, and I live in a very dry climate - single digit humidity routinely most of the time. As I would like to use this rod - not put in on the shelf - is this concern valid? Also, what reel weight is needed to balance the rod on the swing at the top of the top grip? Thanks.
For me, the glass is neither half-empty nor half-full, but rather twice as big as it needs to be.
