the Sandy 'Clave it's a HUMMER! Grass casting the rod (well, back up a moment) ... Joan and I were heading out to drive back to Ashland and Lee came over and said 'before you go you've got to try this rod.'
He/wife and extrodinary wonderfull folks: so 'sure, why not?'
Couple of test casts to get the feel of the rod .. and pulled all (yes, all) of the line of the reel and it was airborne. No s..t .
Don't know who designed this bit of work, but if it's the same rod, VERY COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to get my hands on 'the reel thing' (yes, reel, not real) for summer work. Far too many 9wts are too heavy for the Rogue, this puppy could be just the ticket.
And as I have two more Spey rods coming .. if you e mail Joan I'll have to Kill You ... or she'll kill me.
What are the price ranges on these rods? Heard they were going to be fairly inexpensive. But know how things change from design to production. What price range do these fall under? Will be in the market to buy a few new speys in a couple months. Would be interested in trying them out once I'm healed up. If I like, may possibly buy them.
Does anybody tried them for skagit lines? This weekend we tried Rio's Skagit 7\8 and 9/10... The 12'9 8/9 seemed to cast better with 9/10. It easily raised the belly with Rio's UFS tip #8, made long casts(inspite of not so perfect skagit casting skills) with really sexy loops. But anyway where to find lines, skagit of course, recomendations for Lamiglas rods?
