Yeah, i've been checking that pro cast for a while hey... but i see that they have excluded the pro cast with their lifetime warranty. So its between the pro cast, guide and the classic.

I have 4 Xplorer classic 2's. They have served me very well over the years. Awesome backup from Jandi trading is also a bonus.

If your budget allows, I would go with a Stealth Infinity.
Ganis.co.za currently has an unbelievable offer on the 8wt Infinity

Just a quick update on this.
This is my setup:

Rod - V Explorer 6wt
Reel - Shimano Biocraft XTLA 6wt
Line - Rio WF6 line
Net - Stealth net
Sunglasses - LeSpecs Green and Orange Mirrored Polarized

Went to Dullstroom last week and managed to get my first fish on fly and my 1st trout!
Have no idea how much it weighed, im guessing 500g.
