I'd like to trade my 12'8" BVK for a Loomis IMX Pro 51111 or ACR Nova 2 1205-4.

Rod is in fantastic shape and absolutely beautiful.

Really sings with a 420 grain Rage Compact.

One of the finest summer rods I've cast, just looking to pick up something that will do double duty for me as a trout/steelhead combo.

Hope ya find what yer lookin for. I have a 51111 and its one of my favorites. Might BE my favorite 2 hander I own.
I've got its big brother the 71111 and that rod is truly incredible. I was unsure about the tiny bottom grip at first, but have learned to love it, and find it actually helps keep my stroke nice and compact.

No doubt that the 51111 will be just as awesome.

Thats my only Critique is the grip sizing. Especially if you want a larger diameter reel. But its just small critique. Funny you have the big brother of it cuz I have the 8wt BVK and I love it too. Not a ton of finesse but it is a hammer for throwin skagit heads and big flies.
