Bobby, this is my third. I used to buy only All Star until they went off shore, now its St Croix for me too.
Roger save your coins, they are worth it.
Anthony, here is a link to wtex's web sight, he will be glad to answer any questions you might have. The Rod builders guild usually meets in the metroplex in the winter. Be a good place to meet some of the best, and they don't mind sharing their knowledge...http://www.wtxcustomrods.com/home.html
