An 8 weight rod becomes more of a specialized tool than a generalized piece of equipment.

For example, I found that certain rods perform better with certain lines. The ProAxis performed best with most floating tapers. The TCX and S4S really shined with shooting heads. I really like the BVK with a short head bass line.

For more conclusive results, go test the rods for yourselves.

Exactly- some of my points in the previous G. Anderson thread from months ago.
Most rods prefer certain lines. you just have to fine the line that wakes up the rod.
