Re: question for the rod tech geeks
My streamer rod for a little while was Sage's Xi2 in 690-4. I was able to roll cast it fairly well. I'm sure if it was a higher weight, with a thicker/stronger butt, it would perform horribly. I know of one guy on the Taylor River in CO. that uses a 7wt and has a damn near perfect roll cast. It can be done with lower weights, but very doubtful with higher weights.
