Let me know when you get the ten and cast it...that's what I'm interested in...I'm about ready to regress from my Sages TCX and Method to the old Cross Current GLX; there is a used 10 for 399. at Trident in Maine...this was because I fished Aaron last week for two days and used his  one piece 12 wt CC Pro brought back memories of yesteryears...essentially blind casting after a single roll for two hours and it was easy...real easy for my weak casting..got one Permit first day he left the camera at home!! broke the two year curse, now at 26...second fish of the first day fought like a real jack C not Permit...no initial big run and come back.. just short runs flyline plus 50 feet backing...thereafter they got smart and I got clumsy...and there were more guide skiffs on the water last week than I have ever seen...Aaron remarked it was the February warm-up and new moon coinciding   His 12wt was easier to cast(less work and it "told" me when to haul) for me at 60-70 feet than either my 10 wt TCX or 11 wt Method...I have been very interested in Edges at their price point

    I bought an 8 and a 10.
    Haven't got the 10 yet.
    Direct from them, with "direct" and special 30% discounts that took price from $900 to $346 apiece.
    I truly feel it is a lot lighter in hand than my TFO's (and even my G Loomis).
    I spoke with an Edge rep, and he basically said "don't buy our rod if you don't like super-fast rods."
    He said it was superfast, when I said I prefer moderate rods.
    I bought it anyway, and it works great. Picks up, drifts, and casts line very well.
    I have only had it out in wind, and it handled the wind easy.
    I am very pleased.
    The warranty doesn't look nearly as good as TFO and G Loomis ... so don't break it.
    Take care.
