Ha. Drank to much?
It does not have to be about you.
You already brought together a community of top notch people. I bet a lot of them would like to join forces.

The people I have got to know through sexyloops are the ones I would want to join in an organization. They are the most passionate flycasters around.

Mackenzie Fx1 Graphene?

I did cast a 9ft #6.
It was not my kind of rod. To soft for me and I did not find it a crisp rod.
Not a very solid review, sorry :).
I could only compair it with a T&T which I found a lot nicer.

Why do we want a compound front taper like the MED has?

How about a Wulff Triangle Taper? I have seen some dutch people use it. It makes the water casts easy and is quit heavy (it at least feels heavy to me. Did not weight one)
