Like you, I’m a fan of thre Steelhead Finder but wish it were longer. A couple of the Nextcast Prostaff guys advises me to try the Salar Finder 45 as it is longer - 6’ on the 8/9 over the Steelhead Finder 7. Picked up one last week and have one morning on it so far. The 6’ does make a difference.
Not ready to review it yet though as after all fall throwing 16’ rods and FF70 lines, I need a day or two to get my 13’ winter rod stroke back. I ended up changing my Snake roll motion significantly this fall and while I live it on the long lines, it is not as good with the short ones.
Also, in reference to Bolen’s comment on 10’ tips. I’ve always thrown 15’ tips off of the SF45.
