Ooops, I forgot to say how I feel about Bob Meiser's rods.
I own two of them, his S2H106 7/8 and 9/10. They are great rods and can be used in places where Spey Rods will not work or might make you very unpopular with other fishers.
Also, they can hammer out the Teeny and Rio sinking tip lines with the wind, into the wind and with the wind right in your face. They work well with the floating and intermediate 8 and 9/10 weight lines that I previously owned.
His 7/8 does a good job with the Rio Wind Cutter 678 (Bob tells you what Wind Cutters to use with his rods unlike some rod manufacturers who make this the great unknown that forces you to buy line after line to find the one that finally works). My main line with Bob's 7/8 is my Orvis 8 Steelhead Slick shooting dry line.
With that line, I can roll cast 40 to 50 feet, lob an indicator upstream 50 to 60 feet, or high stick nymph right in front of me. Trees behind you are no problem with roll casts or Double Spey casts.
You can use Bob's rods in a boat, a drift boat, pontoon boat, kayak or a float tube.
Last but not least, his rods are a work of art that hold up in the stream/river/ocean.
