Re: Yeah It's Heavy but Man Does It Ever Cast!
While I've never cast a true "long belly" so this should be taken as pure speculation but I got alot of guff from folks when I said I want to fish a 10wt DT off a 10wt rod employing spey casts alot said it won't load. Then I figured out why I like heavier rods over the light stuff, a heavy rod has the mass to almost load itself and I'd bet if you were to exaggerate your back stroke when forming the D-loop that rod will fire the 775 like it was shot from a gun. The only downside is you will need alot more room to form the D-loop.
Oh I live to be the ruler of life not a slave
