Dan, I think if the pro4x was the 7/8 I would have already scooped it up. The 6/7’s head suggestions seem a little light for me but I am sure it would be killer either way. Trying to stay under $300, only so many options out there. From what I hear, they have a more progressive or “less fast” taper and I prefer that. Not huge on the super fast rods, although I have never owned a real high end sage or loomis, etc. Thanks for the input, I have watched all those videos on youtube, great stuff!
