Can't wait hopefully it makes it by early next week so I can hit up some trout streams.

Came today, and if all goes well it will get wet tomorrow. After just holding and wiggling this rod it is light years ahead of the previous TUSA rods in my opinion. After fishing many Japanese rods if this didn't have the TUSA sticker or a blind test based on feeling alone I don't think I would have know this rod wasn't imported from a premium Japanese line.

Well done Daniel!

Craigthor - have you used your new Rhodo yet? I think you fish the Iowa streams just over the border from Wisconsin, where I fish. Our streams should be very similar. My one concern with the Rhodo is if it has the backbone to handle the bigger fish that the Spring Creeks of our area tend to grow.

Anyone reading this, if you have a Rhodo, line it with #2.5 level line and let us know what you think.

Go ahead and buy a spool, you will not be sorry.

I'm thinking Craig may have sold his already.
