guess i'll leave well enough alone then! thanks for voicing your opinions!
sorry Dave, wouldn't be what you would want anyways. this Ambush is only 215 gr., I used it on my s/h 5wt. then converted it to a d/h. but,,,, another question if I may,, if I wanted to make a scandi head for this rod, would a d/t line cut back to 2.5-3 times the rod length, and balanced to 20-25 % less than the wt. of the Ambush head wt., work for me? that was the main reason I thought about cutting off the running line in the first place.
