Burkheimer 6 Wts

I've cast the 6126 and love it and I now have the opportunity to acquire a 6127. Can anybody fill me in on the difference in action between the two? Thanks much.

7127

Same rod, I believe, just a minor tweak and a relabel, maybe to suggest that it wasn't intended for dead-lifting giant fish or something. It was a 6/7 to me when I demoed it, and very light in hand, so I can see it as a 6wt. It's a fantastic rod, and on my short list.

I don't see a 6126 or a 6127 on the Burkheimer website. Is this a new model?

I have the 7127 which is a great rod and seems to be 6/7.

I noticed that also. They offer a 6126 on the deschutesangler website as well. IS it 2 diff rods or is it just now listed on the burkie website as a 7127? I am buying a new rod in Oct and am seriously considering this rod. Cheers.

Talking with Kerry there are a lot of rods not listed. He has multiple tapers for each rod. tell him what you want he has it or will build it.

I talked to Nate at Burkheimer about this confusion and they are indeed basically the same rod. Seems like a lot of folks took the 7127 to BC and had a lot of breakage problems with big fish hence the new 6126 designation.
I have the 7127 and would not consider it suitable for BC steel. It would take too long to bring a big fish to hand and then you run the risk of fatally stressing it.

I have the very early 3 piece 12'6" (notional-now 4 piece) which a friend broke in a very big Russian salmon. Our local shop has a 4 piece 12'7" marked for 7 line - it is on my list too....a very sweet rod.

I'm confused. Are the 7127 and the 6126 the same rod? Same taper and same tip, or are they different? Why would they still list the 7127 if it changed to the 6126?
