I just picked up a vsx150 bailess, was planning on using with a 9'6 Air Wave Elite, that I already have. 

Not sure if it's going to happen this year but looking forward to attending the fishing expos. Would be nice to check out gear in person, rather than buying stuff online via looking at the specs and guessing. 

Great choice! That's my go to set up, VS150 and 9'6"awe. You're going to love it. Super light set up and it casts a mile. I did run into one fish the 150 couldn't handle last year. First cast at a boulder field. Few cranks in and something hammered my darter. Never hooked into anything that big before, was peeling line so fast I thought I had forgotten to tighten the drag, went to tighten it and it was locked down. Felt the line rub on a rock a few seconds later and lost it. Still haunts me. I'll be picking up a 200/250 or something comparable this year for when I'm fishing boulder fields.

Ha I'm sure you know the spot. I might try that other spot we talked about for some holdovers this week. This off season has been really tough so far. I'm realizing that fishing was therapeutic for me and I'm really missing it.

I keep checking out the birds every time I drive down QSD, I get excited every time I see them huddled up, but no signs of fish yet. 

I can't wait to try out the new setup, I'll have to get it out for a trial run one of these warm afternoons. 

I picked up a cheap acoustic guitar as an off season distraction, but just not the same as getting out fishing. Even getting out and not catching anything is time well spent.

I have a vsb100 on a 10’6 tfo and I think it’s perfect....I have a VR50 on a 9 ft tfo and that’s  great too.
