Right on, I use a 8/9 powerspey and a 650 skagit with a 5 ft cheater. I just got the skagit a couple of monthes ago and still trying to master it, every now and then that baby really flies out there. I have been casting mid bellys only for the last 12 years. After casting the skagit, I was kind of wondering if I might like a 9/10 powerspey better. I have never cast a scandi before, is this a pretty good rod for it?
Do you happen to know how much your 9ft cheater weighs? If that works well for you I might have to give it a try, I have a 600 skagit. The little bit more fuller flex really makes a difference between the two 1408s?
