Default Re: 7 weights....why no love?

7wt with fighting butt ZG Helios is my go to for bass here on the shendandoah. It's a tip flex so it zings out those big hairy buggy bass flies with ease. And if there is a carp about, I got that covered. Sure I have a 5wt mid flex that I take along (in case the 7 snaps).

I skipped over the 6wt. I had a 5wt and a 6 would have left me light for carp.
