Is the handle on the black widow not the sheet?! Reminds me of my old lamiglas xmg 50 that I loved and lost in my divorce. Not sure what is going on with edge, but I'll pay $300 for another 8' heavy/mod if tw still has one in December.
Edge is still making rods, albeit very slow at times. They've had a 50% off sale in the beginning of November last year and then again in February this year. While not nearly as good a deal as Sierratradingpost.com, at least you know if the rod is broken in transit, you'll be able to get a replacement.
As for the handles on the Black Widows, yes, they are very similar to Lamiglas handles. I like them better though because of the Wiebe style locking nut, but that same nut will also scratch the reel foot unless you protect them which I do.
