Report back on how you like the Ion 10wt. I've been itching to find something to match up against musky with and this was recommended by a shop owner as a good stick for the job, with a stellar price tag.

I have one. You can cast far, cast big flies, fight a musky and the thing is damn near indestructible, but it will make you work for it. It's a bit heavy and clunky, imo. I think the TFO Esox has all the positive qualities of the Ion, but is a little smoother and lighter.

Fwiw, they redesigned the Ion and a buddy of mine got it in the 6 weight. He said it is lighter and crisper than the old Ions, so maybe they are more similar to the Esox now.
