Whatever you choose, keep your fingers crossed! I had this rod (and loved it) - a WindCutter 7-8-9 or 8-9-10 will work fine. So will a MidSpey 7/8. If I was going to fish tips, I'd probably opt for the 7/8/9 WindCutter to put less load on the blank.
Ths rod had a nasty habit of breaking. Dana broke it, I broke it, etc. Even when the rod was only under minimal load (about 40-50' of line from what I could see Dana was casting). The guy/shop I bought it from was kind enough to refund when we couldn't get it to stay in one piece. Both breaks were clean and within a couple inches of one another.
Have fun - If it stays in one piece it's a great casting rod.
Loop Adventure was Loop´s rodseries before the Color Concept rods came out on the market in the year 2000. I have the 12,4´ #8-9 adventure... it´s a great rod for the price. and it was in scandinavia the best two handed rods after Sage in the 90´s!
