was trying a windcutter in 8/9/10 on this rod it casted pretty good. i tried a 8/9 midspey yesterday on the lake by my house where i usually practice casting. i was amazed at how far with the midspey i could chuck the line out with a single spey. i hit casts of 100 ft and more with this setup. i was simply amazed at how far this setup casted. i guess all that practice paid off. juro thanks for the casting tips i recieved on fine tuning my cast!!!!!!!!!!!
