The sale is only at the Arundel Mills store from what I understand. BPS is a little shady about their pricing when it comes to the mail order, internet, and store prices. They use a disclaimer that prices may vary between the "entities", your not guaranteed the circular price thru the catalog/internet and vice versa.
I am not sure because I have only seen them in action. I have a okuma 12' rod and I can throw only 8 oz with that one. I like the OM because the 12' is rated for 6-12 oz and it is strong and very stiff. Great for those 8 and bait situations. I have found I can throw the stiffer rods much further and easier. That is my reasoning for purchasing these two.
i got one of the 12' casting rods 6-12oz, all they had when I was there last Sunday was 4 after I picked up mine. I was out casting last night and 6oz feels like nothing on the rod at all. Definately has some backbone.
