I just purchased a 489-4 DAL from Burkheimer and I absolutely love it. It's perfect for casts between 15-50 ft and I've slayed more bluegill and bass with it thN I can count. I'm looking to replace my current 6wt and I was looking at another Burkie. I mostly use my 6wt for bass on farm ponds, smallmouth for rivers no wider than ~60 ft or so, and on a small trout stream for throwing smaller streamers to stocked browns. I'm debating between the 689-4 DAL or the 690-4. Does anyone have any experience with these rods that they could share?
