Latest Cane Two Hander off of the bench ......

It’s been awhile since I last posted on here, but I thought that I would post a pic of the latest cane two hander to come off of my bench. It’s a 12’ for an 8/9 weight, hollow built, made with splices and she is heading North, to one fishy angler .........

Is this just another excuse for me to buy more rods ?

WHOA !!
I vote for more photos !!
What lines does this handsome devil like ??
I'd say that 12ft 8/9 configuration is about perfect for winter steelhead here at home

Mike ........ Thank You for the kind words. My favourite line for it is the Nexcast WA45 in a 7/8, but I personally feel the Nexcasts fish a size heavier. A Scandi in the 540- 570 range seems to be its bucket. The angler, that she's heading North to ....... tends to favour his Galeforce lines, curious to see his thoughts

Is this just another excuse for me to buy more rods ?

When I finally get it she will be sporting the reel I got from you Mike and I know it will rock with both the scandi head and 54 both from Gaelforce

Bearing in mind my own experiences on balancing out reels on long bamboo rods…I am wondering how much the young's reel may weigh, although looking the part..I feel it may be somewhat light.

I prefer lighter reels on all my rods as I like the rod tip near the water or in the water on the swing not in the air and find heavier reels slow down your hand speed while casting not to mention just holding the extra weight all day long. I normally fish rods 15-18ft and this will be the only Rod I will own that will be under 15ft

Very nice! A very beautiful rich colour. What sort of taper is it? Tip, progressive or regressed?

Last weekend I spent a few days in Wales, fishing on the Dee. I took along my JMR 11'7 #7 and 12' #8 and also my new Bridge lines, at 42' @525 & 44' @575.
I normally use a 34' 480 Steelhead Scandi on these but it took a while for me to dial into the 42/525, but when I did, it flew. I think the 575 was a bit too heavy for the 12' #8. The Carron 55' (a James Chalmers designed line too) is also one I want to test out, I hear good things of it on a Shamburg 12' #8.

I'll be very interested on what Gaelforce lines go with this rod. I've tried various Nectcast heads and I didn't get on with them. My JMR 12'8 Winter Run is a semi para as well, but to date the Scandi 480 is what works well with it and haven't strayed too far from that. I sold all my Newscast heads last year and bought Garlforce heads. I also have a Carron 8/9 which is probably similar to the Gaelforce 55' #8/9
