Love It

I have it in 570 for my 8 weight. I dropped down one size 600-570 due to the shorter head with more concentrated weight. I love the way it swings, very slow and having the head buried keeps me from mending when not necessary...no visual clue. Just cast, set up mend, and let it swing.

You can go lighter on tips. I like it with 8ft of t14 or 10-12 ft T11.

Agree completely and use the 570 on my 8 wt. definitely slows things down and caught my biggest seatrout in Argentina on this line. 24lb and a great line as far as I am concerned
