    Had to laugh out loud. This is precisely why we have so many of the darned things. Over time your 'taste' in rod actions will evolve. "Welcome to the Dark Side!"

    I have a Meiser 13'6" 7wt S rod, with two tips. one is the regular S rod tip, the other is a turbo tip. The turbo is about 25% stiffer than the regular tip, which regresses the blank towards the butt a bit, giving an action that reminds me of an MKS but not as much. The rod still likes bottom hand too, and it's lighter than an MKS. That rod will cast any kind of line, pretty much!

    +1 to SS's comments above. A few custom rod makers are now selling two tip rods. The second tip can be used as a 'back up' if needed but the real reason is the stiffer tip is set up for a Skagit line system. The lighter for Scandi's.
