Going to try an Avid

I held them several times this winter, and strongly considered getting one "for my wife" who fishes about 25 minutes a year.

Really though, I have fallen in love with split grips and have always liked the Avids so the idea of combining the two is something that excites me. The only reason I have bought is that they don't make a Pearl in 7' MH.

I can't wait to hear what you think of it.

First you're oogling Kevin Shorts pink boat and now pink rods?

The Avid Pearl is fuchsia, not pink.

Knowing the difference between fuchsia and pink is not helping your case.   ;)

If you hold out, maybe you can get the Dancing with the Stars - Tom Bergeron Signature Series :)

BTW, who do you think will take home this season's mirror ball trophy: Nicole or Evan.

Dang, I'm whipped :)

I'll say this, the sucker is light.  But they severely over-state the power & action on the rods.  The 6'8 MXF is more like a ML-moderate fast.

Bought it for the wife as a general purpose rod, but I don't think it will be much but a light-duty small worm rod. 

I don't understand why they don't make a 7' MH-F.  Don't they think women will fish a 7' worm rod?
