I love the cause it is for plus I love TFO rods for thier money. My wife has the Breast Cancer Awareness 5wt, My dad was a veteran as well as I and the fact that some of the sales go to help wounded vets stuck a cord with me. So as all the threads of Mid priced rods go around keep this one in mind. They have Healing Waters for Vets and Casting for a Cause for cancer. As danattherock stated when I sent him a PM showing this too him. A nice matching reel would look sweet on it. Dan I like your suggestions and Im open to to others. Oh and it will be used and used hard so it is not all about show.
