NextCast SalarFinder are a little longer and consequently not as beefy. They can be had with intermediate and sinking back section. The obvious tradeoffs apply. SF is better if you want more distance easier (in particular fishing small-medium runs without shooting line), iFlight or the Airflo equivalent is a little easier to manipulate, especially in tight quarters and/or if you have soft water near the bank, and better with big flies.Ok, apoligies if this is a ridiculous question but has anyone compared the iflight to the solar by nextcast? are they similar at all?
