Dang... I may have to get that new BFS Ultima.
I've been fishing the 172H for a couple of years now, and it may be my favorite rod ever. It's just so perfect for so many uses.

Another reel to consider is the Shimano Vanquish. It is available in a pretty wide variety of size and ratio combinations in the smaller sizes. I am personally waiting on a C2500XGS to come in, and I'm strongly considering getting a C2000HGS as well. I prefer faster ratios for most of my fishing. It...
Huh never knew that the 1000FJ didn't have an aluminum frame. I owned one for a short time and only used it for a few trips, but it really felt like it was too solid to be graphite. I was fishing with a 1500 size Certate and my 1000 Ci4 on those trips as well, so I figured that I would have noticed....
The TSRs are excellent rods. I use mine all the time and love it. You really can't go wrong with one. My next ultralight purchase is going to be a Phenix Elixir 7ft 1 piece. I held one at the Bassmasters Classic last year and loved the way it felt. It had a really nice fast action with a soft tip an...
I have my Ci4 on a 6'8" UL rod. I've used it on 2 different 6'8" ultralights (G.Loomis TSR and a Varivas Violente) and it balances both of them out great, but I've never tried it on a longer rod. I personally prefer fast action rods over moderate for the most part. My Varivas is an excepti...
They are listed here.
If you used google chrome it will translate it all for you.
Ah OK thanks for the help. Man the 170MH and 264UL both sound really appealing.
The 1000FJ does have an aluminum frame. Are you thinking of the Ci4+? The Ci4 reels are actually pretty rigid and don't really flex or anything unless you're using heavy braid and cranking down the drag. I have an original Stradic 1000Ci4 and it has made a few trips to the Gulf of Mexico. I keep 6lb...
I really need to get my hands on a PG someday. I've wanted the 6'8" BFS rod for a while now but I just haven't managed to make myself order one. The poison ultima line was expanded this year. Do you have any links to info about the new additions to the series? I'm currently checking around for ...
I'm personally satisfied with the price. I just won't buy one until a good sale comes up. At 20% off, the 100 size will be $440 with free shipping from most places nowadays and will include a US warranty.
Until I started using longer ultralights, my favorite rod was my Falcon Original 5ft ultralight. I still really like fishing with it for tight quarters ultralight fishing. I think they retail for $60. Hope you enjoy the rod you chose. I'm jealous of the fact that you have things like Mayan cichlids ...

I'll second the recommendation for a rep sample NRX. I haven't personally tried any rods that can outdo them in sensitivity yet. I don't have any experience with the Z-Bone rods though.
Just the other day I dug out a 6' St. Croix Legend Elite that I bought just because it was really cheap a couple of years ago, and decided to give it a try. Now I have used it at least some on every trip since then. It's so light that it barely feels like there's anything out past the reel seat when...
