Although not for me where I'm at, I took a long, serious looks at these rods. I needed a lighter long rod though, and an 11 foot 9-10, so I bought two rods. I fish a lot of trout too, so I have lighter rods from Bob. Hum, it must be remembered when hearing this that my largest trout was 32" last year.
For the right place, the conversions are great!
Talk with Bob, share where you're going and what you want to do, and he will share openly. That's how I got the odd ball rods I have now.
