    OK. I lawn casted the Outbound in an 8 and it performed very well. It's a keeper. The thin running line will take some getting used to. Casted best starting with all 37' out of the guides and ample running line at my side.

    Next up will be the 40+ and the Outbound Short.

    The Outbound always casts best with the entire weighted tip out. That loads the rod properly. You don't have to overline the Xi2. I have a 10 wt. with a 10 wt Outbound and it casts beautifully. I demoed a 7 wt with both 7 wt Outbound and 40+. They both casted well.
