I need advice
Heres the lowdown, type8,300,400gr big boys. Do I go with the windcutter 10/11/12 or the windcutter 11/12/13. I know the rod is a powerful stick but the 11/12/13 seems like lead rope. I'm still leaning toward the 11/12/13 but don't want to make a 150$ mistake. I guess what I'm getting at is, will I be supprised at how well the rod handles the 11/12/13??
Thanks in advance,
Twohand

Twohand,

Go with the 10/11/12 Windcutter on that rod, or better yet the 10/11 MidSpey. The 11/12/13 will work on it; but it will slow it down and the rod then loses that nice fast, progresssive, and light feel the GLX's are noted for. This is a rod I like a lot that has a wonderful feel with the 10/11/12 Windcutter, 10/11 MidSpey, or 9/10 GrandSpey. I nearly bought one 6 years ago until I cast the T&T 1611. Too bad Loomis doesn't make a 17 ft GLX 11/12.

If you want to use the 11/12/13 Windcutter, get the 15 1/2 ft 11/12 GLX.
