I'm no where near Simon's casting level, but this rod throws some serious line. Not happy about selling it, but I have too many 8 weights.I'm surprised this rod has not sold. I've cast them with the Nextcast FF70 and FF55 8/9's and found it to be an awesome rod. I've also seen Simon Hsieh casting this setup and throwing darn near across the Clearwater with it.
I don't know the details on this rod, other than I bought it late last year from Poppy. Rod is well done, with some nice accents.The price on this and other US goods has gone up 5% for us Canucks since the post was put up...:Eyecrazy:
Very tempting but I have a few 15' rods in this line category already.
I take it by the looks of the handle Simon is custom wrapping each blank?
