Default Re: 8WT Rod Suggestion

I was reading through this thread for the first time and Jaybo hit my first thought about experience with two handed casting. There is a learning curve and also different line types that can affect how you cast.

I suggest making the trip to a fly shop and trying them out. I had a Winston I really enjoyed and I cast a buddies older 7wt Winston and really liked it, so I bought a 8wt BIIx without trying it out first. Turns out we were not a good match and I plan to sell it. So just go try a few out and see what works for you.
