Hi Folks,
So I have a near new, new to me, Burky 8152. I have four other Burky's that I can cast in my sleep, a perfect fit.
This rod, 8152, seems very different and tempermental to line weights and casting stroke/speed/ forward stroke etc.
Anyone else have this experience, what lines under 50' heads do you use, weights/grains etc.
Thanks for any feedback in advance.

Not under 50', but I cast one with a Nextcast FF 55' 7/8 and thought it was a nice match.

No. I found it to be vintage Burkie. I never tried any heavier lines with it. The rod belonged to Greg Bencivenga who's on their pro staff. I just used what he was using. I love that rod and hope to own one one day. I have a 7127 and a 8139-3 and think that 8152 would round out the quiver rather nicely.
