So today, I received a new Scierra 9' 8 weight. I didn't matter what line I put on this rod (rio pike, carp, outbound, SA magnum) because it cast them all well. For those of you who don't know, it's a progressive mid-flex rod. I love that style of rod. The other rod builders out there that have similar rods are Guideline, Mystic, and a couple of other companies.

So, if anyone has one of these, or a Guideline LPXE, in their closet that they want to get rid of, please let me know.
