Avid or Smoothie

Recommended Posts

Both are good rods, and it may just come down to how you like the feel of them in your hand. One thing to keep in mind, is that the Avid has lifetime warranty and if you break it in 10 years it can be replaced at a greatly discounted price.

I have used the smoothie and there are tons of people that swear by them. I know it's not really helping you make the desicion, but I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

I actually own and use both of them. I can be using the Avid and pick up the "Smoothie" and not notice much of a difference at all. The Avid has a slightly faster tip on it making it a little less forgiving. The Smoothie still gives you all the sensitivity but has a better action and feel in my opinion. I'd say buy 2 Smoothies instead of 1 Avid!
