Any ideas on how it'd perform on a 8 wt. Z-Axis?

I also use it on a 6 wt. 99% chironomidding. What are you looking to fish for?
As for using it with an 8 wt. I don't see why not. It's a fast rod and I like faster rods for fast sinking lines like the Deep 7.

It feels light, but it is castable. Just don't throw out large streamers with it.

Would I be better off to use it on my 6 wt. Z casting Clousers and large streamers?

I'll be using it for Pike and Walleye.

I use in on a Z-Axis 691-4. It throws size 2 Clouser Minnows with medium lead eyes well as long as you don't go too long on your leader. Keep in around 4 to 5 feet.

Just another thought. If your flies are going to be heavier and bushier than a size 2 Clouser, you may want to use your 8 weight rod. I would line it with a Rio Custom Cut Outbound T-11 line. I would cut the head to 30 feet which would make it a 330 grain head. That will help you deliver those burly flies easily.

And having an 8 weight weight would give you some good backbone just in case you get a trophy sized pike.

I appriciate the info you've supplied; but, now, I'm totally lost as far as this line goes. Where can I get more information on it? Thank you.
