    Ooh me too! I want to get 5wt Epic Glass for hunting some bigger trout and steelhead up here. Lovely rods. I was thinking of building up one from the kits they offer.

    I have the 10ft 2wt ESN, and to be honest, I have mixed feelings about it. It fishes the Smalblaar and lower EP beats really well if you are into picking the pockets with some nymphs. Which I really enjoy, but I dont like the casting action for dry flies that much, and its a bit of a struggle to use on the more headwater beats. Maybe I haven't fished it enough to get used to the difference. I still prefer to use the 2wt SPL for some light nymphing and dry fly action on those smaller sections.

    I am loving my Greys Streamflex 10" 3 weight and now only fish the Sage ZXL 8'9 3wt when fishing bushed in sections. I must say that for me the 10" is not that great in a headwind and I recently struggled on the Witte with a headwind (although it was more of a gale than a wind), but it is a beaut and i can safely say that my fishing has improved since I started using it. Better drifts, softer tip for fighting fish and Im happy fishing only a dry with it. Very versatile rod.
