Kabuto rod 8053

If I only can choose "one rod" for trout fishing,with unlimited budget, what rod I would get? the Kabuto 8053 - 5 weight 8 feet. LINK. This rod is amazing! period. Its delicate enough for close range presentation, yet, punch through the wind like no body's business. Streamer fishing, you bet. The rod is medium, full bend action, relative strong tip, it remind me the G-Loomis GLX Dredger 12'9 6/7 spey rod a lot. also full bend and good feel of the rod load. When asked, the Kabuto rod can really drive the line into "wedge" loop and punch the line and big fly into gusting wind. Me, BG and Griz all love this rod. And just a note to you, we are not purists... we are just a bunch of fish dudes, we can be careless about what materials it is made from, we only care about fishing ability and the fishing feel... Kabuto rod, get 11 points out of 1-10 scale! The extra point dedicate to the artistic craftsmanship and the "Jedi" energy. "
It's a light saber!" BG said.
