I agree. Hmm Fenwick is a reappearing guest - I will have to look into those rods esp. if any of them are moderate/moderate-fast action suitable for treble hook moving baits.
In my experience, all of the UL or L powered BFS rods that I have used are suitable for lures with treble hooks regardless of whether or not they have a moderate, fast or extra fast tip so I would not lose any sleep trying to find that perfect rod. Having said that, I would rather have a fast or extra fast BFS rod because I can use it for any technique. Take for example my 6’5” L BFS Expride, it has an extra fast tip but I would not hesitate to fish the tiny Strike King Bitsy Minnow with it and then switch to a Flick Shake or a Finesse Jig.
I wish so bad BFS would take here in the US. I would buy so much more. Would be cool to see Abu offer $100 cheapo Veritas 6'6"L rods or UL rods. I would probably still go for the more expensive/quality options, but I would just like to see more people get into it. I bet Dobyn's could make one hell of a BFS rod. Many manufacturers already do, they just aren't locally available.
