The Boron 11x is phenomenal. The lightest , most precise casting rod I have ever seen. Up close are real far away is a piece of cake with this rod.
The rod that has really gottne my attention is the new Winston Vapor . We have been fishing this rod a lot lately. It is the real deal. It definetly has the " Winston Feel". Cosmetically very nice - wooden insert and all. It cast very easily. Up close or far away, they got  a winner with this one. You gotta put one of these babies in your hand and take a feel. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Agrred Grump- The Vapor 5 ewt. would make a good Bass rod ;D ;D ;D  But that Vapor is the real deal..

8'6" 4 wt BIIX the best casting rod I have ever held in my hand.

This rod is so sweet.

Bob,
  Just joined the BIIx club myself. Got a 8 1/2' 5wt in today and it is as sweet as everyone says it is. I am very,very happy with it.

Just got back from playing with the Wisnton BLLX 2 - 8'6"- 5 wt.- That is a true toy. What a pleasure to cast. This thing makes anyone be a good caster. My goodness, what a rod.
Hey Grumpy- put a 4 wt. GPX on the 9' 4wt. Accent- see what you think.
It will flat chunk some line. And actually feels pretty good for $179.
Then try the 8' 3wt. with GPX 3 wt. on it and tell me what you think of it. Cast pretty good.
