Default Mastery Textured Series Chard's Grand Slam

I have it in an 8 wt. and the word that comes to mind is, "Powerful!"

When I got it, I took it out into the yard for some grass casting. I pulled a bit of line off the spool and lazily swung the rod to get some line out, but I wasn't prepared! The line shot out with hardly any line past the rod tip and I swear I killed a palmetto bug (giant grasshopper in Florida) in the grass with the force of impact. With a bit of effort, I could dig divots in yard!

The line is about counteracting ocean breezes and turning over big saltwater flies; not finesse. However, a very long leader will soften the blow when that is the objective.
