Scott L2H rods?

Anyone running the scott L2H rods? I'm curious where they feel on the slow vs. fast spectrum.

I'm really geeked on their 11 foot 6 weight. The grain window is a touch on the light side and I'm curious if that keeps the rod more crisp/fast.

Any feed back is appreciated.

I have the L2h 12'6" 7wt, and found a 520 SA skagit extreme to work well. Really like the smooth action when casting.

I looked at them but wasn't crazy about the short foregrip.

IMO= Fast

"Fiberhammer" = fun

L2H more versatile, beach to spey to bobbers - Fiberhammer = spey,rivers,sweet,fun and a whole lot of deep power.

I have the 11'6" 7 wt. FAST recovery. Flex's pretty deep into the rod. And fish DO feel great on this rod, it is different!

I own a L2h 1158. My opinion is this rod is a bit slower, loads a bit lower in the blank, but still makes tons of GO on the forward stroke.

I orginally loaded it with a 480gr SA Skagit Extreme. I recently went to a 525gr Rio Skagit Short. I find the Rio loads the rod better to my liking. With the SA 480it just seemed like I had really pay attention to my anchor and sweep. The Rio 525 just seems easier. I like to feel that loading of the rod. It gives me ample feedback and lets me know exactly when to drop the hammer on the forward stroke.

Have spent some time with the L2H 12'6" 7wt. Threw an Airflo skagit switch 510 first then moved over to the 540 Skagit switch and fell in love with the rod. The rods are on the faster side I felt but load nice and deep with a ton of power. I think Scott is in the game they just need more people to try them. just my .02

L2h1308

I fished the 1308 winter season before last. One of the best progressively loading rods I've cast, smooth and powerful.
Tried alot of different Skagit type heads on it, and liked a 23' 580 SGS with tips best.

(Only reason I sold it was because of it's overly large rear grip and reel seat.)

I've four Scott 2H rods and like them all. The recent closeouts on the ARC 1196 was a great deal on what is fast becoming my favorite rod. There may be a few of these rods still available.
