I've now added a Shading X, and a Poison Glorious Cover Trap.
Get your kids hooked on fishing, and they'll never have any money for drugs or alcohol.

Stan Fagerstrom the trick caster and elite angler before they had a name for it, could make the Loomis CR721 and SJR700 do anything, but bark like a dog. G Loomis innovations that stood the test of time.

Which look do you like better?

Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

It weighs just under 8 oz. as seen with the red accents and carbon fiber handle.

I have read your logic behind refusing to call a trout rod a bfs .
By definition (some, that is why it comes up) any casting trout rod you refer to is as close to finnesse as it gets .
So , I offer this . All tiny trout rods we are talking about are bfs, while not all bfs are tiny trout rods.

I just acquired an MSX Limited BFS and not only is it stunning, it feels like a feather!

Nice. Is the action truly regular fast - or more towards regular or fast?

(I have a Volkey and a N-one, which are both described as regular fast - but they have very different action)

I have the 6'5 model and id say its a regular fast leaning towards fast.. very crisp. The blank is very thin but its still pretty stiff. Havent fished it yet but will this weekend.
