Even this summer in Norway.
Wow! Someones got nice fish this summer in Norway!?
Just kidding - my four weeks fishing in Surna and Gaula wasn´t very succesful; due to lack of water AND fish.
But about IMX / GLX:
IMX doublehanders are fast becoming some kind of cult. Just couple of weeks ago I saw one old, a bit soiled 15´IMX on market; asking price 1200 euros (about 1500-1600 USD). I have one such rod and like it alot, but no way I would buy one with such price.
IMX 15´ was in many ways revolutionary, but nowadays it´s definately "old-school rod". Latest Loops etc are much easier to cast.
Same thing with GLX - fine rod but taperdesign is almost 10 years old - and now we also have even better materials.
