The 8126 is my choice for winter fishing on the Squamish and Cheakamus as well I've fished it a fair amount up north with just a dry line.Due to it's shorter length,it works especially well with scandanavian style shooting heads. I have tried a variety of lines including the following:
Long delta8/9(head seemed a touch long)
Loop 9 (primo)
A nice edition to the quiver nom doubt. Which Maxwell rod are you selling?Brian Niska
I've never been a Sage fan, but last week I had a client with this particular model, & I fell in love:eyecrazy:
His line was a WC8/9/10 multitip, & the rod was very effortless @ 50'-90'(hey, the river is only 100' wide!). Type 3 tip was no problem, the type 6 tip required a Perry Poke/Armenian Spey(more a problem with my having spent the last 5 weeks with a 7' 3wt).
IMHO, this is a sweet stick. If you like the Sage feel, & the rod is big enough for the water you fish, then go for it.
