    Anyone wanting to give Spey a try at a nice entry level price might consider the TFO pro 12' 6" 8 wt on sale at Cabela's. Only $98 or $99. I saw them the other day, and they had 6. Gave one a wiggle and it's not bad. A faster action rod, but not surprisingly much for that length and line weight. Thought someone might like to know.

    A fast 12'6" rod is perfect for Skagit lines. Hell, if I didn't have 3 12 to 13 foot 8 weights already I would by one just to see how it casts.

    Fantastic rods I always thought...The Rio Skagit flight is absolutely superb on this rod. If you want to go longer both the Delta Speys and Nextcast lines rock. --AJ

    I'm in the same boat as Kerry. Most of the TFO Pro Series Two-Handers are kind of no bueno but 12'6" 8wt Pro is an exception. It's a pretty good intro to Two-Handed casting rod and at less than $100 it's about as good as you get.
