I have been working with the VT2 14’4” for a couple months now and I must admit it is not a bad rod.
Been casting a 650 Skagit with a 5 ft cheater and it will take a 11/12 Carron.
Had Highlander 2 casting it on Saturday and he remarked that it was not bad also
Most of the students who have learned to cast on the Rod have bought one.
Still waiting for the 9139-4 have cast this rod some and Like it.
I have the 7130-4 in the shop but have used it very little.
