WTB 6wt single hand rod

Hey guys and gals,

I'm looking for a 6wt single hand rod. Plan is to set it up with a regular line as well as an OPST commando for single hand spey. Currently using a super cheap $40 rod (my first fly rod) and want to upgrade to something a lot better, like an entry level Sage or equivalent. Budget is around $200 CAD.

Moderate-fast to fast is ideal. I'm not huge into super fast rods because I'm still learning. My cheap rod catches fish all the same...Being honest, the upgrade is just for looks and feel. My cheap rod is quite heavy and the cork is...not real cork...it's foam wrapped in a cork veneer

must haves:
-cork handle
-lifetime warranty is still good (blank card or whatever)
-4 piece

Thanks

Try looking for the Echo Ions. You can get them cheap and the warranty is rock solid.

I have the Cabelas LSi 9' 6wt I use for streamers. I have the Rio Outbound Short Intermediate on it and love the rod.
