It casts the Lee Wulfe TT #7/8 wt (65 ft head) well; it has a soft forgiving tip so it is good for fishing very small flies in low water conditions but has plenty of power in the butt if you really bend it into a fish.

It's not a rod for sinking lines or fast tips & heavy flies - but it wasn't designed for these, it was intended for delicate floating line work for grilse or summer fish in low flows where a stealthy approach is required; something it does well.

Tape the ferrules & put a locking turn or two of tape on the aluminium sliding ring comprising the reel seat, this will hold it securely fit any length of reel foot.

I still dig mine out & use it when I face low water on wider pools & want the additional control this gives me, which I can't manage with a switch rod.

Regards, Tyke.

It is quite a slow action, you can't hurry it, but it will put a nice line out if you take your' time with it.

Like all long head light line outfits it isn't a rod for windy conditions, but on calm days & low water conditions then it comes into its' own.
