    The 8134 is a rod that everyone seems to like a lot. It is a great greaseliner and also throws the heavy junk too with a 600 skagit compact. It can also be made with a stiffer tip section that would make it even better lifting heavy tips and flies. You can't go wrong with this one.

    I have the 8134 and also had Kerry make me the "s" tip so I had a spare on a Dean River trip.
    The rod rocks ... with a compact skagit a 570 or a 600 works well ... The S tip is nice with skagit work as it picks up the line with more authority and launches it well. I use the regular tip when throwing scandi heads. This is one rod that I'll never part with.
