Just wondering if anyone has experience with a mid belly line on this rod?
Something like a Deltaspey 2 or SA traditional? Opinions?

I love that rod. Great transfer of power even though it is pretty mellow. I think it would be great with those lines. I know it loves the Nextcast Fall Favorite and SteelheadFinder, which are heavier and shorter than the Delta, but longer than Skagit/Scandi heads. FWIW.

How about a Delta2 7/8 to that rod? Maybe an 8/9 ... those are the short bellies in the series. I'd lean toward the 7/8. The 9-11 weights are the mid-bellies.

On paper the Delta 2 and SA Traditional are very similar. Just wondering if there was any first hand experience with this type of line/rod
combination...
