    I fish streamers and big wets exclusively so I will give an opinion.

    You need a rod that will toss a semi roll / power cast in many situations. Usually there is very little room for a backcast where I fish so the skill and technique of the caster comes into play more than the rod. I use braided lead heads rather than sinking lines and that helps allot with getting the cast back into the air regardless of the backcast area.

    These are the rods I use;

    * Lamiflex 6' 3" 5wt. very stiff
    * Orvis 7' 9" 5wt Far & Fine, med fast
    * Orvis PM 10 905, pretty fast
    * Orvis 8' 6wt. Battenkill, slow / medium
    * Greys Platinum X 9' 6" 7wt, med fast
    * Quarrow Drake Big Horn 9' 7wt, medium
    * Orvis cane 8' 6" Lt. Salmon 8wt. medium
    * Orvis Sliver Lable 9' 9wt, medium / fast
    * I have a new Sage VT2 9' 7wt. that remains untested.
