z axis 7136 for trade

If you are interested this rod I would like to trade for something that better suites my needs- not sure what that might be- but I'm open to suggestions- If you have a less expensive rod like a deer creek 1307 or Echo 1266 I might swap if you throw in cash or a rensetti traveler or some such thing. I really need something a little zippier for my casting style, in any weight rod any brand considered. Any offer will be considered so even if you have a slow action, fast recovering rod- I'm all ears.

A little more info...

Hi, maybe it would help some of us offer up rods if we knew what kind of casting style you typically use, do you find the Z too fast or too slow? long or short? or are you just looking for different?

Yeah, mainly different- and shorter- I find myself backed into trees often and fishing from the bank- love my T&T 1307- Redington rs4 133-

what I really want is a Burkie 1257 - fairly short and light -

theonfishes t&t 1208 might also fit the bill -

Zippier for your casting, then you dont want the TFO Deer Creek Spey or the Echo. The TFO is a very traditional spey rod action, very noddle sorta speak. The Echo has a lil more back bone but not much more. If you want zip, Punch, Power, fast action, best zippier for your dollar, get the TCX. Even the TCX switches, which in my eyes should be called spwitches are awesome. They dont call the TCX spey the DEATHSTAR for nothing. The TCX SPEY is what you want. Trust me.

If you want shorter, then look into the TCX Switches, at 11'9" they are PEEEEEEEEERFECT. Still lots of power. I got a 6119, and have a 375gr Rio Skagit Flight and it cast 10ft of T-14 with now issues. If you want to BOMB some big flys and t-14 for some big big fish get the 7119. You will absolutely love it.

How 'bout ...

a Sage for a Sage? Like a GIII 7136-4 "Bownie". You mentioned "something zippier": maybe a Beulah 12'7" 7/8 is more your taste?

the 13' 7/8 Deer Creek is plenty zippy with the right line, I like 450-490 gr of compact scandi. It's like a po' man's ultrascandi. The secret ninja Deer Creek S rod.

but mine, despite mass mojo, is so beat I'd be ashamed to trade it. That's how much use it gets.

I just purchased a used Deer Creek 13' 7/8,,,,, with the Airflo Scandi Compact 450gr, it is very zippy, throws a long line with ease.

Regards,
FK

The TFO will launch some line for sure. Not dissing it one bit. I used and still use a 11ft 7wt Deer Creek Switch with a 475 skagit short, and I was using a 525 skagit flight on the 13ft 7/8 Deer Creek spey. And they both launch for days. These rods do cast a lil bit differently than eachother, the switch was a little slower action than the Spey, but both are awesome rods, especially for the price. But the TFO rods do have a completely different action (not nearly as stiff) than the z-axis or the tcx. It has much slower rod than those rods. They are based more on the traditional action rod. Great for whatever casting you are doing Spey or Skandi.

They are a very forgiving rod.

Thanks

Thanks for the offers via pm. I am having intermittent connection trouble but will get back to you all in the next few days- Some great offers have come through and I'm considering all of them while I let a few more trickle in.

475 is a bit on the heavier side for that rod, which will make it flex more. Remember to not confuse "flex" with recovery speed. Bob M. has a few great posts giving the full explanation easy to understand.
With that said..any rod will flex more with a heavier line...and seem "faster" with a lighter line. The TFO's may flex deep when loaded, but are fairly fast recovery rods.
