Default Re: Beulah 10'8" 7 weight Platinum Switch for Michigan and westcoast steelhead

I have that rod with a 425 gr. Rio short skagit head.

I love the rod...mostly. It's my first 2H'er and I'm a novice at 2H but when I relax and get in the groove, it goes pretty good.

I have a 3.5 Lamson Velocity Nickle on it and it balances the rod almost perfectly. That said, 30# backing, running line, and the head fill it up pretty good...not enough to affect the landing of a fish but if I had my druthers it would have been a 3-3/4" instead (they don't make it, AFAIK)
