Default Re: Thinking about adding a rod to my trout fishing quiver.

I have actually. When I started fishing the 7 Wt was pretty much the standard all around fresh water rod, and a six was considered a light trout rod.

Even though that glass rod throws six weight line out there well, it feels very light with a super whippy tip on a fairly stiff butt. I can't imagine it doing heavy work like what we are talking about. It seems like lighter graphite rods can do heavier work than their fiberglass counterparts, so I thought a seven weight would be overkill, but I'm open to suggestions.
