I currently have a sage 8150 and it does fine with a windcutter 8/9/10 with tips but it dose not turn over a weight fly very well. So I am looking for a 15' rod in the 8/9 wt class that will turn over a heavly weighted fly. My preference would be a progrerssive action with a lighter tip, something like the T&T 1509. Is the Meiser 15'er what I am looking for? I have not cast it yet but I will in time, most likley at the Sandy Spey Clave.
