Bought it last June and went 0 for 1 with it on summer runs last year. I mostly fished it early and late in the season and used my single hand 6wt when things were low. Still working out some issues with my two-handed casting. It's good one minute and crap the next. I tried a couple of new sink tips today and found 10ft of t-11 cast much easier than I anticipated. And it apparently got down where it needed to be.
