    RJC Rods

    I have taken the plunge and my 12' 5" #9/10 weight (new model to the range) should be on its way to me next week. Should be ideal for those Avon springers.....just the small problem of connecting with one to overcome!

    Just wondering if anyone uses these heads and how they perform......are they easy to cast? Do they get the fly down deep quickly? Any feedback appreciated.

    Bouncing betty devon minnows
