Winston BiiX 14' 8/9 Spey Rod

Hey guys, been to busy with life and haven't had the time to use it as much as I'd like. Probably has seen water 14 times if even. Taped lengthwise and around at all times and dried before storing. Comes with original tube but warranty card has been sent in. I'll post pictures soon when I get home. Asking $470 shipped paypal preferred.

Hey Fishmhard. I'm about to get this BIIx 14' 8/9 is this a rod that would take to a Delta 7/8? Or is this to light? I think the grain weight for the 7/8 is 530grains is this just the head minuet the 15' tips? If so will the tips bring the grainage over 600grains?
I hope this some thing you or anybody else could help me with.
Thanx for looking. Eric R

Killer stick man-
I think the 7/8 will be pretty light as I used it on my 7133 b2x tonight and it was just right on that rod. I have not tryed the 7/8 delta on the 14'er-
You could maybe cut a foot or two of an eight and dial it in that way, but I'm thinking the 7/8 maybe will be prety light... Never know, you may like it
! Give it a go-
Either way, you'll love the rod-

Thank you for the feed back! I think I will las on the D-7/8 and instead get a D-8/9 or even a Rage head for it. I'm also thinking of an Airflo Tactical Steelhead for the rod I found a fly shop who had a big surplus of the tactical lines. Is this a rod that bends don to the handle? If so would the Tactical line #8 be better than the 9?

BIIx

I fished that rod for a number of years using a 36-foot 560 grain Guideline PT. Worked well for me, but I like a heavier line on a rod than many of my friends who are better casters.

This is one of my all time favorite two hand rods. My preference for lines on this rod are short head lines in the 570-600 grains and skagit in the 550-570 grains.

I fish this rod with a Delta 8/9 gr. multi tip and a Vector Ballistic 570 gr. For a Skagit line, I like the SA skagit extreme 570 gr. and the Airflo skagit short 570 gr.

In my hand this rod just sings with these line ups.

This rod paired with the Vector 570 gr and skagit short 570 gr. was my setup for my THCI exam. This rod is very versatile and pure magic!

Enjoy your new rod.
