Only 7' 3" Vendetta rods shown on the Abu website are a MH-XF and a H-Mod. Fast.  It better be your favorite rod since it is your only rod.  Otherwise you won't be a happy fisherman.

I'm wanting to get another, because I want a better all around rod, but for now its fine. I like it, but I'd definitely want a better one.

Never fished a Rage, but at the current sales price, I think it would be a no brainer if you could come up with the funds before they are sold out.  Otherwise on down the road I think the Fenwick HMG and *** Black would be a couple low cost options at their regular prices that should be a nice improvement over your current rod.

If I had to pick one of each out of the arsenal...

Spinning: 7'1" MLXF *** Black w/ Pflueger Supreme XT.

Casting: 7'3" HXF *** Black w/ BB1 Pro (blows me away how versatile this combo really is)

But let's be honest I could never go out on the boat without my NRX 852c & Ito Ai. I'd leave the spinner combo home waaaaay before I'd leave this bad Larry behind.

New kid on the block is getting a lot of time on the water; I keep reaching for the 7'2" H Zodias. Shimano got this one right.
