Have just the rod to load this on, will do so this later this AM and give it a go. Water flows here on the upper Rogue are really low (1070 cfs last I checked), and 'gin clear,' so a heavy tip you don't need. That said, fish will be looking for deeper water/holes to hide.the 7 wt tips usually round out at 119 grains, Fred, but if it's cut back to 6' it could be less than 80 gr, if the compensator is a 6/7/8 I think it'll go 50-60 gr, if memory serves.
might help you pick a line to huck it. I'd use no less than 400 gr of Skagit head for it.
