Wish I had a six weight line to toss around with this rod. My five weight line feels slightly under gunned for this rod. But, even with the light line the rod still fires it with enough power and presentation to more than make up for it.
I know I keep yapping about the Epic line of fiberglass but, with each and every build I am more impressed with these blanks. Power, strength, presentation without the heavy bulky feel of Grandpa’s old fiberglass.
Until next time my friends,
