Looks like the BVK is king!
Mine works well in all conditions except for the super quick turn, like under docks. When I fish docks I use a TFO Lefty Kreh Pro Special which is Med action 8wt and use a DT 9wt line. The slower action TFO Pro Special is a brute and is about twice as strong as the BVK. It all depends on location as stated above.
