Im going on a bonefish trip in a few months with my dad am needing to get him a new rod, we really only fish together so it ends up being both of ours... I have the X in a 8 and I'm debating to get another X or the Meridian. I have thrown both and like both but I'm leaning more towards the meridian. Also since I mostly fish in Texas I kinda want a 7 wt but am worried I could be undergunned with 7 wt on a bonefish flat if I ever hook up to a big girl or if the wind kicks up. Any input? I have 2 old BVK 8 I always bring as back up.
