Default St. Croix Legend Elite Saltwater Fly Rods

Has anyone cast the St Croix Legend Elite saltwater rod in a 6 weight? I've cast the 8 weight with a 250 and 300 grain sinking line. Its a beautiful 8 weight and casts a sinking line quite well. I was just wondering how the 6 weight did casting streamers.

I like that rod very much. I recently started using a 7wt for streamers but prior to that, the St. Croix stick worked very well. Its a faster rod but not super fast, light in hand with good balance. Hard to go wrong.

Don't know about the Legend Elite, but was thinking the same thing about their Imperial line. Their blank design seems spot on.
