Re: 2 weight rod?
I'm really really happy with my 7'6" 2/3 weight St Croix Imperial and a 3 weight line. Mines old. Not positive what the current imperials are like. If you are looking for a balance between super soft presentation and the abilty to throw weight #12 mirco streamers easily, you should at least cast on.
I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message, and if you would like to reach me by phone, please hang up now.
