Absolutely tremendous rod, surprised it hasn’t been snatched up. Even after all these years, there are few if any 14’ 9wts that match it. The 13’ 7wt 3 piece is the darling of the DH series but this rod is it’s bigger brother and handles anything from full sink skagits to long lines with grace and aplomb. It has the beef to handle big water fresh chinook with lice, not to mention any steelhead that swims, and can be comfortably fished all day, unlike many 15 footers. If I didn’t have one of these, with a spare tip, I’d buy this rod in a heartbeat!
