Default Re: Favorite rod for casting streamers?

On big water with 200-250 gr. QD lines I like the Hardy Zane 9/7 weight. Although we have a new Diamondback Flawless saltwater six, that looks like the real deal. For years I used a Winston 9-6 weight XTR. You need either a real saltwater six weight or a solid seven to pick up big heads and throw big streamers on bigger water. I know plenty of guys including guides who run eights up here. i just can't bring myself to use an eight on stream browns even though we get some big ones.

For smaller waters or lighter heads and smaller streamers, a good med. fast 9-6 like the Winston B IIX, Our Cortland big Sky or a Sage XP will do just fine.
