Recommendations for 10' Rod

Been wanting to get a 10' Steelhead rod. I have fished two handed for many years and want to do some single hand spey and overhead when possible. Like the CF Burkheimer for spey rods but haven't cast their singles. The old Sage XP is pretty nice. I don't know - Winston, Sage, G Loomis. Thoughts?

Ummmm

Not trying to be a smart arse but if you can find a Sharpes Scottie 10 foot for 7 it's perfect.

Other option might be an Echo Ion 10 footer. I don't own one but the one I cast was pretty schwanky.

I have an "old Sage XP" 2 piece and it is indeed "pretty nice". It's a 9',9wt that I use for Atlantics...........maybe I should say used to use for Atlantics as I've only picked it up a couple of times since I caught this Spey Disease.

A 7 or 8 as mentioned would be sweet.

CF Burkheimer 8100-4 DAL

awesome stick! it's really too bad we are known for our spey rods.. our single handers blow our spey rods out of the water

Learned to swing for steelhead with a Sage 8100-3 RPL. It worked very well for me. A smooth and easy casting rod that will roll cast with the best of them. Suspect the CF Burkheimer DAL that Rob mentioned is as good or better. Deep action loading (DAL), is what spey casting is all about, a good roll caster is a good speycaster, obviously. Stay away from fast tapered rods.

Thumbs up Rob may well have a good point.

Burkie is known for their 2handers, and to be honest never cast one of their single handers. But if Carry can design/build that kind of rod, the single hander's should be 'assume!

BVK all the way

By all accounts, TFO's BVK rods are casting machines. And they're not too expensive. My favorite single handed rod is a Lamiglas Espirit (sp?) 10' for 8 but they don't make them anymore. The BVK would be much lighter and one could comfortably commit the venial sin nymphing with it without needing deep tissue massage that night.

Man 'O Man you just took me back a lot of years (don't ask it was that many). Broke a Lammi rod and took thing to the factory in Woodland Washington to get it repaired. 'Would you just like a new rod? You can pick anything you want.'

Saw that rod and my heart stopped; most beautiful rod I'd ever held in my hands. And fished just as well.

I have a Loomis NRX 10' 7 wt that I over-lined with 8 wt Wulff triangle taper that, for me, is a magical combination for single hand spey. Great sensitivity in the tip and enough backbone to have some fun!

Back in the day, before my spey addiction started, my go to rod was a Scott 1008 STS. Yep, guess I liked fast rods even then. I'm sure there are lots of choices now.

I have CFBurkheimer 7100-4 DAL

A super rod for spey casting as well as overhand cast. I would consider it as a light wt.8 rod and use it extensively for a bright Alaskan Silvers, some pushing 13-14 lb.

My favorite by far is my sage 2 pc 8100 RPL. I liked it so much I bought a second one on ebay in case I ever broke it. And if I break them both, Kerry Burkheimer said he'd make me a duplicate. (But I'll admit I've never cast the 8100-4 DAL)
