    Anyone use or have one of these rods. I love spey fishing for trout it my new addiction. Its hard to beat my Beulah 5wt as far as a true trout spey goes. Heard of these rods and want to know more.

    Maybe I'm reading this question off of more than one Board. Steve G's 280 grain line and this thing just zings. Lined up as a 4 or 5 a complete 'dud.'

    Is the 3/4/5 part of the highlander series?

    Call Bob Meiser. He's more than willing to talk, ask, and answer any questions you may have.

    I have been looking at this rod for some time, just haven't pulled the trigger. Web page says it comes in the Highlander or Highlander S. I have a 13' 7wt highlander S and it is great for shooting heads. Call Bob. He has been straight up every time I have talked with him.

    On the meiser website they dont list the 3/4/5 only the 5/6/7. Where did you find it?

    Have this rod lined at 280 grains as a 'three' and Puppy Hunts for Montana Rivers. As a 4 or 5 very questionable.

    I had a 3/4/5 12'6" Classic Highlander for several years and really liked it, only sold it when it became clear I wasn't going to use it much. Landed two 10#ish steelhead with it and bunches of trout.
    If I had to do it over again I probably would have gotten the 4wt S rod instead as I used it exclusively for shorthead work.
