Default Re: Favorite rod for casting streamers?

I just got a new rod for throwing streamers!

I fish streamers in the 3-7" range for browns, and before i was using a sage SLT 6 weight, and for the larger streamers in the 7" range, i probably dont have to say it, but it was alot of work.

I recently got a new TFO TiCRx 8 weight, and even though i have only taken it out 2 days(come on i got it January 25!) I already like it for throwing large bugs.

Its not too bad to throw 4-5" streamers on a 6 weight as long as you can keep them under 1.5g, but once the flies starting weighing closer to the 2gram mark it can be tough to throw them. And all my 6-7" streamers are over 2 grams.
