Re: Scott STS 907-2 rod

It is a great rod that was relatively fast for it's day with quite a bit of power. Would make a good streamer/ lighter flats/ carp rod.

Re: question on an old st croix rod

I owned a legend rod that had the wraps you described. It was an 8/9 weight that I bought in 1992. Overall it was a good steelhead rod.

Re: buying a 6 wt

Most 6 wt. rods with a fighting butt come with a full wells grip. It depends if you favor the full wells or a western style grip that often comes on rods without the fighting butt.
