Do a search on it as there's been some discussion on it.

It was designed for Cherry Salmon in Japan.

I purchased a 15.9 456 on Spey Pages from Rookiespey last summer. Used it on the lower Rogue the fall. Been going there for 46 years and have lot's of gear just for that section of river including a Meiser 2/3/4, Decho 4, and an Anderson 1255. In 10 days I fished the 2/3/4 at a couple spots and the rest of the time the 4/5/6. I did not want to put it down! Being long it's a little tip heavy but balances well with a Nautilus 12 and a Salmon 3 The 3 is heavier but I really liked that set up. Ballistic Vector XL 5/6 at 450. Unispey 6/7 multi tip head for sinking at 480. Even half pounders felt good. Hard to beat a Meiser.

Hello Thomas,

We do also have a new series of 5 piece 14'2" rods in 5, 6, 7 and 8 weights, the lightest of which will begin at 350 grains.

The S2H14246C-5 will be quite a bit lighter in hand then will be the S2H15946C-5, but will still have the same medium fast speed of recovery and uniform progressive action.

The S2H14246C-5 will have a grain window of 350 to 500 grains

Floating Scandi heads for this rod will be 39/42 feet in length and 375 to 400 grains in weight ... When married to 15' RIO Versa leaders, the total working line length beyond the rod tip will net @ +- 55'

She will also be happy with the previously mentioned Short belly Classic Speys ... Vectors, Airflo Deltas, Uni's, Snowbees etc

Steve Godshall can also make a very sweet Classic line specifically for these rods.

Spent most of the day today punching through 20-40mph winds with the S2H14246C-5 on a well-known rocky mountain trout destination. Definitely glad for the lightness in hand, though, I too am curious of its longer sibling. Maybe next year....

Mostly fished a NextCast WA 55 5/6 with tips.
