I've got the mark 1, I use it now & again when enthusiasm & testosterone over-ride rationality. It does turn poly tips over very well however, but you need a beast of a rod to throw it. I use my 16ft B&W Powerlite Spey # 11 wt [that's rated for an 11 wt DT line] which I normally use for heavy full sunk line work & that does make it fly, but I have to put some effort into it - particularly on the lift off if I only have say 3 ft of the 100ft head inside the tip ring, but it does shoot plenty of running line. Now my pals 18 ft Hardy Favourite really likes this line.
