Whoever got the 7/8 DBF got one helluva nice rod. I had one for many years and used it on the Snake and Clearwater with decent success. For me, it seemed to cast well with an Airflo Delta 8/9. The trick with that rod is to make sure you have enough line out and to let the rod do the work. Be quick and crisp when moving between strokes and don't go beyond 11:00 at the firing position. You will have a lot of fun with the DBF, but be advised, don't over do it or you'll be looking for a physical therapist. Good luck!

I was the lucky buyer. I tested out yesterday with a Nextcast WA 8/9 55. It was great. I see what you mean about the high stop point and allowing the rod to deliver the cast. It doesn’t seem heavy at all with a reel that balances it.

Good deal. Often I wish I would have kept mine. But, I eventually replaced it with a Burkheimer 8152, also not too shabby a stick. It really sucks having problems like these, but hey, somebody's got to do it...

Winston 15' 10wt

Anyone have/use this Vintage Winston 15' 10wt rod and can make any line recommendations?
When I got it, was all windcutters....what current lines would be worth trying?
Would this be a good rod for Kings?
thank you
