I need help choosing a rod for a young beginner. Don't want to go overboard on the price. Thinking about something in the 12-13' range. I know all about the St. Croix 1308 but I also saw a Temple Forks 12'6'' 8 wt advertised. It's a bit less in price but I'm not in a position to go see one. Has anyone? What's your thoughts on them? Thanks.
