Fishhawk: I've got both the 91404 and the 91504

The 91504 is a much heavier-stiffer rod, I'd likein it to a light 10wt. VERY powerful rod for tips (I don't think twice about loading a 26' 300 grain RIO Big Boy on this rod.)

Was using this rod this morning on the Rogue and went 5/8 on large summer runs. Have hooked beached fall kings well over 20+++ pounds and the rod said 'why not?'


Very different handling rod from the 91404

PS: Saturday (using the lighter 14' 9wt) I went 3/4 on fall kings, 2/2 on summer runs and 1/1 on a nice trout.

I think Fred misread your question.

The 9150 is a totally other rod from the 8150. More backbone and a "heavier and somewhat slower" feel. The 8150 is my favorite rod but I do like the 9150 quite a bit. The 9150 handles tips to 250 gr. well and is a pleasure with a long bellied line.

Many will tell you the 8150 was really a 9 weight. I would only agree when compared with the old brown noodle 9140-4. However if you buy that rating logic, then the 9150 is more a 10 weight.

It sounds like the 9150 is what i am looking for . I also love my 8150- It handles the big boy 220 gr well . but i iwant something
that is a slower that i can fish heavy tips with. rod because i have bad shoulders and the big heavy 10150-4 that i had kills me after a day fishing.
