iagree I've been lovin' my z axis switch!
OH, and golfman...NICE avatar
9' Cross Current GLX with the Outbound Short
I like my Echo Ion 10' 7 wt with 40+ line.
I love my 9' 7wt CC GLX coupled with an outbound, but I think my favorite is the 11' 7wt Native Run GLX overlined with an 8 wt outbound. I even use it from my boat sometimes, tons of fun.
original flavor sage graphite II, 2 piece, 7100 with a 7wt outbound. if you can find one of these for sale, buy it!
I am kinda suprized that no one has said Axiom yet! I kinda like my new Echo 2 10' 5 weight with a 6 weight outbound!
TFO TiCr 9ft. 6wt. w/rio outbound. With a good double haul this rod and line combo will sing.
My 6wt Rainshadow RX-8+ and TFO 5wt Switch rod... got an Airflo 40+ Intermdiate for the switch rod that I need to get out and play with! :thumb:
Meiser 11' 4/5 Highlander switch for the searuns/rezzies on calm days
Meiser 11' 6/7 Highlander switch, twin of the above for windy days and/or mature salmon
Meiser 13' 7/8 MKS, really for steelhead but good for throwing bombs to salmon when it's really windy
Previously used a TCR 697 which was a great one-hander with a shooting head and a Z-axis 5110, 11' switch which was a great rod in general.
Haven't fished this yet, but it had better become my favorite beach rod because that was what i was thimkin' when I got it: Fenwick "Iron Feather" 9'9" 6wt 2-pc. I need to try out a few different lines on this before I know what works best. Came with a good reel and a decent floater and a Cortland 444 Clear Camo Intermediate on the spare spool. Managed some fairly long casts on the lawn trying it out with the Clear Camo before I bought it. No time now, though, as I'm locked into "busy" mode at work and just finished spending some time researching and shopping for a newer rig.
Is there a seven weight axiom, I love casting those and a 10 ft. switch would be awesome for me and my bike explorations around the sound
just picked up a 796-4 Sage RPL from a board member. I'm gonna play around with lines a bit tomorrow and get that things bombin line. Its a sweeeeet stick.
Also got a custom piece tyler speir made up for me. rainshadow RX-8XF blank in a 9' 6wt. Its a cannon for sure and sends my outbound a long ways.
That 796-4 RPL is a sweet rod. Nice pick-up!
A Scott S4 9'6" 6 wt with an Airflo 40+ absolutely blasts line out there. I have an Echo 10'10" switch which can throw one mean double haul or double hand cast...
10' 6 wt. GLX Classic with Outbound. Shoot likes a rocket and the extra length is ideal. Still very light and easy on your cast arm/shoulder.
