    Anybody fish this rod? Just looking for a starting point as there are many new lines out now that were not out when this rod first came out.

    I have a range of lines, skagit, short and medium dry lines I just haven't had the chance to cast a bunch yet and wanted to talk about it.

    I am bored

    Thanks,

    Mark

    I fished this rod quite a few times this last year, but I only used a 450 skagit with different sink tips. I can't really speak to any new fangled lines, but I'm sure there are some that would be great with this rod.

    I use an old Wulff 8/9TT for floating line. My Skagit head is old school - 17'-6" of DT12 for the belly and 15' 10wt sink tip.
