    i was casting a 7wt z-axis at the fair, it was definetly a cannon. also i really like the distance of casting the scott S4 in a 6wt. a switch rod should also be helping getting them casts way out their.

    Little canon...4100 z axis

    Little bigger canon....4110 deer creek switch, outbound line or afs..

    Big canon...Meiser 11'7 5/6 switch..Bob's line and/or outbound...

    So far only cast Bob's line...overhead that thing freaking flies!!!!

    (also just picked up a 9'6 rpl 7wt man that thing feels like it will throw some junk too)

    I love my 9' 7wt CC GLX coupled with an outbound, but I think my favorite is the 11' 7wt Native Run GLX overlined with an 8 wt outbound. I even use it from my boat sometimes, tons of fun.
