Here is my favorites.
A stretched to 15' Burkie 9149. This is the best fishing and casting 15' rod in my opinion.
Burkie 8133 or 8139. Awesome winter or summer rods.
I do not own the Burkie 7125 but I will be ordering one very soon. It is a great summer rod.
Meiser 14' 8/9 Highlander is another sweet stick.
I also think the MKS 13'6" 7/8 is a gem.

As you can tell I am a Burkheimer fan!

Yes you can, actually ;) The Bruce & Walker 13´ Norway. Aprox. the same weight and the same medium fast action but a little deeper and more powerful.

I tore my right bicep in a few critical places in early May. I have not really been able to cast any heavy rods since then.

I own the TCR 9129-4 and it is a superb rod. It cast the Cannon Jet Stream 9/10 floater with authority. It booms the Skagit 650 with any tip that Bob Pauli and I had. I'm now hearing that it is probably better matched with the Skagit 750. I can't wait for my bicep to allow me to go after the King Salmon heading up our rivers.

My bicep injury has limited my use of my favorite Late Spring, Summer and early fall rod, my Sage 6126.

I have a new Sage 5120, which I can cast about 20 to 30 minutes at a time with my injured bicep. It does a great job with the Skagit 450 and the Rio 12' sinking tips. It does a great job with the MS 6/7 and 7/8 floating lines (didn't work with the WC 5/6, which I have recently sold). In windy conditions, I use my WC 678 with my MS 7/8 tips.

Fishing from a boat, Meiser's switch rods are unbeatable for me. I own his 5/6, 7/8 and 9/10. I will be buying and trying some of Rio's Outbound lines to get deep with these rods. Even the little Sage Spey rod, the 5120 is too long to use in a boat with a fish on. Meise's two handed switch rods require a little more finesse at 10'6" versus a nine foot one handed rod to bring in a fish. Once you learn, you can bring them in, grab them with a Boca Grip and release them with no problem.

Favourite double handed rod

Scott LS2 1408, light, cast superbly well, it's a fantastic rod made here in America.

Another one would be the Hardy Angel 14' (maybe in a near future), and why not a CND Solstice if only it was possible to find a CND dealer here in Quebec.

Tight lines.

not again!

i thought we covered this before :D ,mine is an old Daiwa 18ft'r=C98 is the model,cheaply attired, a tart if you will, ;) but she loves me in a way that no one else has :smokin: ,and if my wife found out it would be bad as we've shared many smiles between us,,welll,,, :chuckle: the main reason i love this rod is the body she has,,,uhmm,i mean the blank!=totally progressive action;right to the bottom,yes she's easy to overpower,but a more willing dance partner is,,,hahaha,,so hard to find,and the long legs she has just drives me wild! :saevilw:

You know, I don't think it matters. The more I fish with a two handed rod, the more I like them. For any fish. On another board I watched a video of the first fish some guy caught with his new rod. It was a tiny 7' 0wt rod. I watched the him flail away and finally cast about 25 feet. He must have made 4 or 5 backcasts each time he delivered the fly.

With a two handed rod I could have made the same cast with a single backcast and the fish wouldn't have to watch the line flashing over head 4 or 5 times before the fly was presented. Even though it was a tiny stream a "trout" spey would have worked fine.

So my favorite spey rod is anything you hold with two hands.

gald you stepped up baldmountain

i only posted because i read my last post and felt that i had sort of `quelled the riot' so to speak,i don't spend the time here that i used to,and never intended to douse the fire of the thread,,any and all speyrods i've owned were a kick in the pants,from 12.6 to 18 ft.,even done some `spey' casts with my single handers,,,it's all good,,,price/length,,,no matter,only the fact that you spent the time is what's important,,,one person that floated with me that uses a two-hander,a registered nurse of 60 years of age herself and a fantastic fisher ;) made a comment=none of the old folks i tend to ever said they'd wished they'd fished ~LESS~,so just have fun, :D ,that's what it's about,so,who's having fun with a rod they wanna' talk about!???,,,don't let the old Hammer shut the fire off!,post away! :)

Yo Hammer!...

Aren't you up kinda late. Ifn you don't get your beauty rest you won't be a "steely eyed guide" in the morning. Are you gonna row that drifter over here to Idaho in Sept? Bring your BIG stick. You and my friend "fishman 26" and maybe Jack Cook (all looonnng rod lovers) can all wave those BIG sticks around while we watch.

I only own two at the moment,, a Redington 15'er for a 10/11,,, and a 12'6" 7/8 Diamondback and i love them both. Had the 15'er on the lower Vedder in Feb and it is a power house!! The new DB is my favorite,, just a sweet rod to cast all day long.
Unfortunately the big RED is too much stick for most salmon rivers on the East Coast so check the sell page sometime soon! :(
