I owned and sold this rod. For my tastes, which are pretty tolerant of soft / moderate rods, a rod of this length benefits from being just a bit more snappy. It is slightly better than the graphite III version, by virtue of a slightly stiffer butt, but still kinda mushy (would be better if the graphite recovery was quicker / cleaner). ymmv

I don’t remember exactly, I bought it used for a good price, but owned it only briefly. I remember it felt sluggish lined as a 9 wt, so I tried 8 wt stuff, just couldn’t get it to really pop (compared to my old Burkie 8139-3) and sold it. It is not a bad rod, quite smooth, just no wow factor on line speed. At the time I’m sure that I would have tried all 7-8-9 wt versions of Airflo Delta and SA Shortheads (55’), Rio Midspeys, and early-gen Rio and Airflo skagit heads.
