Dude I just saw this...what are you thinking...not the 1408!!! That is the sweetest casting rod with the Windcutter 9/10/11, the Delta 8/9, the Delta Long 8/9, and the NW Skagit 8/9 lines...what an awesome all around all season rod! If I was forced to choose only one rod for fishing for steelhead it would be that rod. Don't do it!!!
