just spent a week on the skagit/sauk/stilli/sky with a couple of good friends, and back to back tested a number of new rods. i thought i'd post this to the chat group on a new rod which is quite amazing.

the new scott ARC 15 foot 9 weight spey rod is fantastic. it does everything the sage 9140 does, only better, and i think this will be the new 9 weight rod against which all others will be judged. it will fish casts with up to 225 grains of sink tip out to beyond 95 feet (of line, not counting leader), has a great feel in hand, loads effortlessly, and i really think that this may be the ultimate light tip/dry line rod out there.

i think this rod would serve those skating dries or greaselining the bulkley, babine, thompson, and lower deschutes admirably, and i have cast no other rod which has this combination of user friendliness, balls, control, and feel.

has anyone else had a chance to fish this rod??

I just purchased a blank for this rod. Can anyone (bubba?) tell me your favorite line(s). Thanks, Bill

Wondering if answers to this question were sent through backwaters ... I'd be curious to know the line for this rod as well, since the appropriate line seems to describe a rod better than the "official" rod line weight designations..

Not only would I like to know what line was used, I would like a side by side comparison some day of this rod with the new Sage 9150-4 and the (as yet to be released) Winston (Derek Brown) rod of same size and length.
These are sure to be the creme de la creme of Spey rods and I'm sure we will have to pay dearly for the privilege of owning one of these jewels. Better make sure which one you want before you put down your hard earned money.
