I have an LSI in a 5 wt switch rod that when paired with a 360 grain airflow skagit switch and a 10' poly leader is a dream to use for fishing streamers. The plus side with the Cabelas rods is that you can fish them for 60-days and if you don't like them you can return it for a full refund minus minimal shipping. If you know someone who has the right line to use, I would order it and give it a try. I originally purchased both the 5 wt switch and a 13' 8 wt, which I returned unused because I couldn't get out with a correctly matched line. The cost was about $10 which I thought was a very reasonable rental fee.
I have the 13' 8 weight Spey and its a very nice rod for the money. Mine is lined with a 600gr. Skagit Flight and that seems just about right, if not to heavy. Its now my go to winter rod and throws everything under the sun. Defiantly recommended.
