FeHedder#5 - what is your typical setup with the WA 45 (e.g. polyleaders, tips, tippet, etc.)? I'm thinking of picking one up for use here on the east coast based off reviews on the site but have never come across or cast their lines before.I use a Nextcast WA 45 in the 5/6 weight on mine. 470 grains, and it is pure awesome. Fantastic rod!
