Re: Line for 2wt Winston im6

Had the exact rod a few years ago...either the SAGE Quiet Taper DT2F OR SA Mastery Trout DT2F were ideal matches. Stay with true to weight lines.

Re: Greatest 3 Weight Rods

Agreed, the super fines are designed to load with a short line out the tip, so really effective in casting short distances in the smaller creeks / streams.

Re: Orvis 8'6" Superfine carbon

Love everything about my Superfine 904-4 except the bling bling reel seat hardware. Would love the same rod with the unlocking seat hardware from the old Superfine Trout Bum series.
