Mornin fella's, new here and have a question for you more experienced "swingers". I am currently fishing a Reddington Prospector 7 wt. loaded with a 475 gr. Skagit Max. and 10 ft. of T-11. The rod is advertised as a med. fast action and calls for a 500 gr. + or - 50 head. My problem is in launching big heavily weighted rabbit fur leeches (gives new meaning to the phrase "sustained anchor"). I have my eyes set on a new Beulah Onyx 13.7 or Platinum 13.2 both 7 wt. Please give me your thoughts on all three rods or would I be better off going up to an 8 wt. rod. Don't be shy your not going to hurt my feelings. I have already tried adjusting my casting stroke and timing to no avail, the rabbit just holds to much water. In appreciation for your thoughts I've included a little fish porn..........I hope.
