Anybody have one of these they are willing to part with? Prefer a Vintage but will entertain all.... I have a custom built Sage TCX 8119-4 and a 2015 clear/green Hatch Finatic 7 plus i would be willing to trade. The TCX has Loomis cork, ALPS triangle reel seat and REC guides with pearl wraps. Rod and reel are in excellent condition!

Might trade my 7127 for an 8134... :grin2: I sure hope you find one as these are amazing sticks!
I've owned an 8152-4 and loved the feel but WAY too much rod for my locale. Got it as a tip guiding in AK.... How does your 7127-4 fight fish? whats the biggest fish you've tangled with? Little worried about putting it on coastal steelhead up to 20 pounds and don't want an 8 really. Most of our fish are in the 8-15lb class...

The 8128-4 is more a 7/8 (540 airflo skagit compact) and probably better suited for NorCal coastal streams than the 7127-4.

Thanks brother, that's actually the first rod on my list. Having owned 7's and 8's and fishing this area my entire life I know the 8 is more suited for what I do. Just needed some questions answered about the burkies

I seriously got to use mine for the first time on a Skeena trib for a week in November. While I never did land several Steelhead over 15 lbs they were at my feet when we lost them. This rod worked and worked well with a Rio Compact Skagit and all sorts of Teeny costom tips to get me in the ZONE. 13 Steelhead on in 5 days in low and clear water. while I am not into that short of a rod overall it did what I needed in waist high (leaking crotch) cold water. Yikes.
