Well, I had never heard of such a thing until I came across it on youtube tonight. Could it be adopted in the UK in certain situations, perhaps but I don't feel qualified to say, at least it's quite interesting :)
I am looking for a second rod. I use a 13'8 for a 9 weight Hardy Marksman S.
Love the rod but looking for a spare.
The question is should I go for another 13 ' 8 for a 9 and just use it in case of breakage etc or get a different rod to cover different situations such as an 11' for a 7...
