WTB: 8 wt spey

I am still looking for a good quality 8wt, 4 pce Spey rod, 13 - 13'6", suited to casting Skagit lines with heavy tips. As yet, I haven't dialed in on a particular make, so thought I'd post here to see what's out there.

The answer is very easy:

CF Burkheimer 13'4" 7/8/9 ( 8134-4 ). It cast and FISH brilliantly with any line, but in particular Scandinavian and Skagit heads.

Kerry also makes, in addition to a standard tip version, so called "S" tip, which is a bit firmer and have some advantage when lifting Sinking Skandi heads like
Int-S2-S4 or heavy tip with Skagit heads. For Skagit heads use 540-600 gr head + sink tip. You won't regret, as the rod fish great and cast great, has a unique feel across the entire blank and generate a fast line speed without been stiff.
Pure Burkheimer.
