    Lots of press about the TCX 7126 (aka the Death Star). Not too many reviews floating on the web about the TCX 9140. What gives? Is it the ugly step brother? Feedback from anyone that fishes with this rod would be appreciated!

    LOL. What kind of lines are you throwing in it?

    TCX 9140 (aka Lever of God). I like the sound of that.

    I am sure its a good stick. And, I suspect, if you get'll find a use for it :)

    Don't know. Just bought it and the rod is making its way to me.
    Thinking something in the 10oz-12oz range?
    Anyone with suggestions?

    I have a 7126 and a 9140. I paired them with Ross Big Game 6 and 7 reels. They aren't traditional spey reels but it is what I have and they balance well. The 9140 is used only on big water for big fish and that doesn't happen often though I have taken it to Alaska for King salmon. I haven't done a lot of winter steelhead fishing because of work but now that I have retired, I plan on much more and that's where the 9140 will be more useful. It's a pretty heavy rod for most fishing around here but an awesome rod, nevertheless.
