Re: 7 weights....why no love?
Love my 7wt. Have a 'loomis GLX 9' and use it mostly for LMB or SMB. If you use bigger flies, fish around some cover it's a great choice. I use an 8wt also, mostly for Stripers. I hardly use my 6wt for trout or bass, it's my least used rod, guess I need to change that. Don't worry you will like the 7, IMHO it's a nice wt.
