Re: 8WT Rod Suggestion
I have 8wt's. by TFO (BVK, TiCrX, and Professional series), and Orvis (Helios tip flex) all are in the 9ft, 4 piece configuration. The Orvis is great, can't say a single bad word about it. The BVK is really nice too. I actually find the BVK in my hand more often because it is a bit easier to load and cast on smaller waters, IMHO. My switch rod is a 6wt...why? Because the extra length by necessity has the butt strength of the 8wt. If I were to get the 8wt switch rod, it would behave as a 9 or 10wt. Just food for thought.....
