Default Re: Orvis Shooting Star spey rod

A friend of mine uses a 7130 shooting star and loves it. I have 2 z-axis spey rods and love them, one is an 8110 and the other a 7136. In regards to your question, I've thrown the shooting star 7130 w/ the airflo scandi-compact, rage compact, and skagit compact and short. The rio steelhead scandi, and scandi-short versi-tip. All of these lines performed exceptionally well on the shooting star. For the money the shooting star is a great purchase, there aren't many bad spey rods, just people who can't line them properly. The shooting star has a small grain window, but once its dialed in, its a beast and you'll prob love it.
