    Re: Rod Material Evolution......

    Interesting comparisons Sam.

    When I got hold of the Normarks I inherited, I was surprised how "good" (light) they felt in the hand, particularly the Microlite Match 12' & 13' and Titan Match 13'. ...

    I certainly have enough rods and reels but in the last month I've acquired:
