Dan Craft Sig V 9' 5 weight question?

#1
I'm getting ready to build up this rod. This will be my second Dan Craft Blank and so far I'm nothing but impressed. My quetion is has anybody tried a 4 weight line on this rod? I'm curious if it would still load it and give it a bit more speed for fast casing strokes (impatience)?
Let me know if you've tried anything,
Thanks,
Tim

I cast a 4 weight WF line with my 8’6 3 weight SIG V. One thing about Dan’s blanks is they almost always feel better with a line size up. I have 2 SIG V’s 1 SIG 3 and 1 FT and that seems to be what I’ve experienced.

That's my experience, at least with the FT. Dan's rods are pretty stiff. I was talking with some guys on the rodbuilder forum and they had numbers on the smaller fts... the 3 and 4 weights are more like 4 and 5 (or 5 and 6). Great rods though! I like my 10' 8wt.
