I bought this rod in 7wt in March as a new streamer rod. I had casted my friends older models of the 3wt and 5wt and have been extremely impressed with both so decided to get one of my own and it's been fantastic for me so far. Im loving how it casts. Definitely a fast action, although it seems a touch slower than previous models which I enjoy. Plenty of backbone for punching big bugs through the wind which is what I was looking for. Balances great with my redington behemoth.
I own the 9ft 7wt, I bought this as a streamer rod some time ago and really enjoy it. The thing I really like about it is how it handles sink tip lines and heavier flies. I've also used this rod for carp as well and am very satisfied with how accurate it is!
