Testing with Rio Outbounds and Rio Grands we did not like very much. We did like the Ambush WF4 with a 7' trout Versileader for single and double handed spey casts and overhead casts. With the WF5 and 6
ambush two handed skagit casts would move larger flies than the WF4 ambush but heavy and heavier overhead.

I've had it for a couple of months now--I use it for beach fishing. I can't speak for the Ambush or Outbound, but I've lined it with the 275, 300 and 325 RIO Skagit Max Short, tipped with a 10' Airflo Intermediate poly leader. Based on the Ambush's specs, that would translate to an Ambush 7 (265 gr) or 8 (290 gr) or maybe a cut back 9 (since it's 350).

I personally like the 325 the best, but I tend to lean toward the upper side of a rod's grain window and am always throwing weighted flies like clousers, snot darts, etcs.

Hope that helps.
