I'm surprised no one has grabbed this one yet. As you said, it is a very misunderstood rod in steelhead country. I've owned one since 1997 and wouldn't trade it. It is my to go winter steelhead rod.

I mean that most steelheaders don't consider using a 16' 11 wt rod simply because of its length and the heavy line designation; therefore, how well such a rod paired with the proper long-belly line and sink tips for winter steelhead on large rivers works is "misunderstood".

T&t 1611

I had the opportunity to use a Jim Rusher 1610 Diamondback with extra long cork on the Matapedia last week and had put my 4.25 Perfect on it. Once I got used to the lift the CND DT was singing out. Not on every cast but enough to appreciate what was possible. Unfortunately, that rod is not for sale. So will the T&T take the wide foot of my Perfect on the reel seat? sending a pm thanks.
