    Agree entirely Fred! I have a 15' MKS, new about 8 months ago, and it has displaced several rods. I also have trouble with both elbows and this rod is plenty light enough for me: with a 14oz. copy Bogdan 300M it is perfectly balanced throwing a Carron 10/11 line. It will also throw a Snowbee 75' with a heavy (built in) sink tip. That line is marked 11/12 but is only just on the heavy side. What ever its weight it is the best big river rod for the way i fish. I have a good s/h 15' 8/9 Highlander coming over very soon. These two rods will handle all my bigger river fishing.

    What is required is synergy between rod reel line fly weight and average casting conditions. With my 'elbows' I find that even the water speed makes a difference. I tried this rod with a light reel and - for me - it was awful. Most of those light reels are made I believe so as to be usable in salt with s/h rods....just my 2 pennies worth.

    Yep,

    We'll have all the MKS/Highlander rods at the Sandy gathering.

    Plus all of the new TFO Axiom Deer Creek 11'0" switch rods.

    ... And several new Hybrids as well.

    Looking forward to seeing you all there ...
