Default Re: Need 6 wt. rod recommendation

Thanks for the replies.

Joni - yes, it is a two of the same rod thing. I do like Marty's BIIx 5 wt. It's really nice rod. But, I'd rather have something different.

KSbrowntrout2 & FrankB2 - the ZXL is what I'm gravitating towards.

BigCliff - I have an Xi2 9 wt. and I don't like it. It's just too stiff for my casting style. I use it for stripers in Maine; throwing good sized Clousers and Deceivers with a sinking tip line and, frankly, I've more or less retired it in favor of a Redington CPS 9'0" 8 wt. (which I think is a really nice rod). Scott has always had some lure for me, but I haven't taken the plunge - yet. I'll have a look at the S2S 6 wt at the show.

Hardhat - I'm sticking with a single hander rod for this trip.
