I fished this rod extensively in BC last fall; it casts well with a 575 Skagit flight or Skagit Max if you want to throw sink tips.

I second the suggestion re. the 575 gr. Skagit. It's a sweet combination. But if you really want to see what that rod can do with Skagit heads, try a RIO Skagit 550 gr. iFlight. It's a cannon.

Rio Flight discontinued?

I think the Flight might be disco'd. Just curious if you or anyone has tried the "iFlight" (the intermediate equivalent) in 525gr for the Sage One 7136? Wondering if it might feel the same and also be a good match.

My lines:

Rio Scandi 460 (update of the AFS 7/8)
Rio Unispey 7/8 (the 6/7 is a lot of fun too)
Rio Skagit Max 525
Rio Skagit iFlight 500

The Rio Skagit Max Short 550 or the Airflo Skagit Switch 540 are really nice lines for tossing T-17/T-20 if the river requires some serious dredging.

i have a Sage ONE 5 and a Sage ONE 8. Like them a bunch! I love the switch chucker on them[for Skagit]. I have a #5 on the 5wt and a #8 on the 8wt..therefor you should probably get the #7!

Just a few days ago I put a RIO Scandi 34ft 510gr on my 5wt. I was in regular shoe's...on edge of water...oyster shells catching my line...not as much 'line'stick' in water..etc, etc. But, I had some impressive Scandi casts. You mite want to try that somewhere in one size up!
After liking the RIO Scandi I started to look at some other lines I have that I have not tried. I think maybe I should go to POPPY's Clave and try the SHORTHEAD SPEY 8/9 on my 8 ,?, even though I was told it was for my TCX 7. I could see some good folks...Probably get some ideas and I could teach some things I do!
