    TFO pro series in an 8wt. Very cheap now that they've been discontinued. Much faster than the Deer Creek series.

    My Favs in order of cost

    7133 BIIX - 510 Skagit
    7133 VXP - 510 Skagit
    7133 Beulah Platnum - 510 Skagit
    7130 Echo TR - 510 Skagit

    12' of CCT200 from airflo will cast way better than T14 on any rod.

    A very good inexpensive skagit cannon that someone in this thread has already made a stab at ,is.
    CPX 1338-4.. a 600grn skagit cut back to bout 575 grns will throw big tips and flies as big as you want to huck! Very forgiving rod that excels w/bottom hand. Cant remark bout a 575 skagit flite on er cause I have never thrown one on that stic, but then again I dont like rio's skag flite heads,AT ALL.

    I'll toss a vote in for the CnD Skagit Specialist as a certified turkey chucker but my 13'4" solstice works nearly as well. If you can find one, the 12'4" Echo II Scandi rod kicks a ton of butt as well, hands down the best Echo 2 hander ever made.

    Maybe if you just change you casting stroke you would like the deer creeks and then you could start throwing some junk.

    don't know what your price range is but I have a 13'6" Meiser 8/9 that coupled with a 650 skagit with tips up to 200gr will throw a lot of junk, its a powerful rod and really suited for springers best in my opinion. you can pick up blanks from Bob and wrap up a very functional a great casting rod on the not to overly expensive side as long as you don't get to crazy with components. food for thought.
