Last time i went to the Baltic coast we had the wind blowing in from Poland at 33 mph. Luckily the place we use to fish has some small rock islands that breaks the waves (but not the wind). I was able to hammer my "nine inch nails" all day,at least when not having the wind right in my face.

In a test in one of the Swedish fly fishing magazines last year, the top rod was the Scierra pike #8/9, loaded with a SA pike/musky taper #10. It was two Pike fishermen who carried out the test, one of them a former Guidline staff member.
Thanks for that... What were the other rods tested?
