i'm neither an odd or even wt. rod guy...i like them all
however, i have to say that i have honestly used my 6 wts. in every water type with success and fun! it will throw smaller bugs to trout and panfish and you don't loose the fight. it throws bass bugs and streamers easily. and it can throw lots of saltwater stuff to inshore trout. besides 2 8wts., the 6wt. is what i own multiple setups of. they are very versatile, my favorite being the redington predator.
