Default Re: TFO Deer Creek switch 11' 7wt or 8wt

I have the 7wt DC and its a brute of a rod, while I wouldn't plan to salmon fish with it I would definitely not feel under gunned if I were to take it to the beach to toss flies for stripers. Keep in mind that while its listed as a 7wt the rod has the butt section of at least a 9wt. The grain weights for it tops out at 550, a Rio Outbound Short in a 10wt is only 425grns. I've fished a 480grn Skagit head plus tips and could launch an obscenely large weighted fly with that set up.
