:thumb:Hmmm...Tough man ! I shoulda said two spey rods !!!
For me, My rod below , The Gloomis GLX greaseline 15' 9/10 .... My "G Smooth" stick .... Very nice rod- Rips tips fair well and loves the long bellie ! :thumb:
Well, my goal when I got sucked into the two handed abyss was to start with one rod and do everything within my resolve to keep it to just that. I have the Z Axis 7136 and am quite happy with my decision. So far I feel no need for another two hander. Except maybe the 8-129. I've heard it rocks, too.
I've got that rod. Haven't had the time to spend with it to get a line dialed in yet. Some asshat closed the river before I could. On first test the line I had was a bit long and a bit light. I could tell the rod wanted a heavy line. Perhaps next year I can dial it in and see if it is as good as the 8124. First impression says it is to soft for big fish but I will need to put a steelhead on the end to be sure.
Love my 13'6" 7/8 MKS, but I also love my LS2 1307. Next up will be a long belly rod. One rod just won't do. If a guy could get along w/ one rod, my "right tool for the job" mantra that I've been using w/ my wife would have to go.
