The Salmon 2 fits the rod aesthetically very well and I ended up just putting enough lead core line on the spool before backing, etc. Balances perfectly. I use a salmon 2 on my 9140-4, 9140-3 and 7136-4 brownies. As for the last poster. What are the specs of the rod you are referring to as traditional...which graphite, color and weight? I ask as I have tried my best to figure out the progression of the brownies and the 9140-4 graphite III brownie is what I am familiar with as the traditional action, followed by the euro 9140-3 graphite III...very fast...more of a 10 wt rod...followed by the graphite IIIe (a bit faster) greenie for a couple years...then the tigers eye (caramel...same as the greenie is my understanding with a color change) graphite iiie brownie. I own each of the above rods and thought I had that series figured out finally.
