    I have fished the Infinity for about 2 years. Lovely rod, eventually got a ESN as well.
    Infinity was a bit faster, which has it's advantages, i.e. heavier nymphs, bigger water etc
    Both cast a three quarter fly line with ease etc.

    I don't know the XF2, but my suggestion is fish both rods for a day, preferably, directly after each other, as you might start of the day, not liking a rod, but after 2 or 3 hours, you find the sweet spot, and "understand" the rod's action, then make a decision.

    Nymphing, adds depth to your fly fishing.
    Nymphing, is fly fishing in another dimension

    For an all round good performance, i would choose the XF2. Super action, beautiful rod. Love it.
    Catch and Release fishing is a lot like golf. You don't have to eat the ball to have a good time...

    Hi saml,

    Have you considered an Orvis Helios 2 10' Tip Flex 4-Weight, great rod for nymphing and dry fly fishing, although that is if your pocket can support it cause you won't find it in SA but you can order it directly from Orvis which ships it quite quick to SA.
