I'm looking at getting my first spey rod possibly by the end of the year and just looking for recommendations from the crowd here....I'm leaning towards a 7wt as I'll be fishing for steelies in southern Ontario. I know absolutely nothing about spey rods so I'll take all the help I can get! Trying to cap the budget at $400 for the rod. Been looking at the Echo TR and Pieroway Element, but hopefully someone here can steer me in the right direction. Haven't quite figured out if a Scandi or Skagit rod would best suit me as a beginner...or if there's even something inbetween?! lol Thanks in advance and keep up the great work with the forum!
