I just got back from a week in Montana fishing the Big Hole and the Big Horn. Alot of it was streamer fishing. Tried out (will buy) a 7wt Scott X2S on the trip. Sweet stick and it served me well on my trip. I also fished with my buddies 9 ft 7 wt G.Loomis East Fork rod. It was a little softer (felt alot softer) then the X2S. Don't think you can go wrong with the X2S. I also have the S4 6 weight which I have been very happy with.
