Normally I would fish an 8-weight primarily for permit and tarpon, yet due to the weather I found my self using this rod for everything I fished for that week. 

In the end I was very pleased with the way this rod performed, and have since found myself suggesting to all customers that they give this rod a try for any salt water trip.

What We Say:

I fished this rod on a trip to Ascension Bay, Mexico in late 2007. The weather that week was less than ideal, with consistent wind and choppy water.

What They Say:

We went back to the drawing board to create the incredible Z-Axis Series Fast Action Rods. By improving the entire rod-building process, we created a rod that's significantly lighter, stronger and easier to cast for anglers of all skill levels. The Z-Axis offers an entirely new level of fishability with unprecedented line feel, response and performance. But don't take our word for it-visit a local fly shop and take it for a test spin.
