Just bought a Guideline Le Cie after all the praise I've heard about them and lined it with a guideline 8/9 power taper....and now for an extremely wordy review: Holly smokes! If you get a chance to fire one of these babies, enjoy! If your looking for a new scandi rod look no further. If you need more details feel free to ask or if you would like to add to this review please do so. James.
