I am looking at one of these for my next purchase and I am wondering if anyone out there has any experience with this rod. Lines and line WT's that you are using on it would be a huge help as well. Thanks in advance.
In my opinion a very good choice!!! This is really a do it all rod, I would say that it does really shine with short heads but has the ability to cast long lines as well with some authority. Combos I like on this rod are:9/10 carron, 10/11 carron, 10/11 snowbee 2D, longdelta 8/9, delta 8/9, 10,11,12 windcutter modified version, hardy 10/11 salmon head and also a xlt 7/8 that we were able to cast to the backing knot. I hope some of the short head experts chime in with different combos as well, as there are many for this rod. I would say Mike and Bob really dialed this rod in with many hours spent in development to get it as close to perfect as possible.
Hopefully Meiser will have an opportunity to comment. I'm wondering if it is designed for short belly lines ? That was my understanding on the MKS line. In some other threads I've been asking about a longer rod that will perform well in the ~80 - 85 ft range with WC or MS and big tips for deep swinging. I've not had any experience with Meiser rods but have heard good things from everyone.
