  1. Default Beulah platinum single hand 997

    I'm thinking about getting this as a drift boat indicator rod and a light duty steelhead rod. Any thoughts? I believe it's newer for this line up.

    I really want a longer than 9 foot rod and a heavier than 5 weight rod for indicator type rigs. We fish the lower sac and the yuba River frequently from a drift boat so lots of mending and water haul casting. Thanks

    No specific info but you will have a hard time finding many Beulah owners that are not pleased. I have their base model spey rod (Classic). The quality of the cork and hardware makes my other rods look cheap. Ard has had his hands on a few Beulah rods and is a fan as well.

    Can't comment on the Beulah, but can say that configuration is great for both windy day nymphing and medium sized (up to 3" of rabbit) streamers. I use a Loop Multi 796 with SA Magnum, it's great for big rivers.

    Is that magnum a floating line?

    Yes, it comes in floating and it will really throw big flies with minimal backcast room.

    I have no experience for Beulah single hand rods, but I've had 3 Beulah double hand and in the process of getting the 4th one. The Platinum blanks have good tapers and light too. but again I am basing my opinion on their double hand rods.

    The build quality is really good, aesthetically matches Bob Meiser custom rods.
    PM me if you want Beulah rep email.

    Heard nothing but great things about Beulah rods. I started using a Sage 99 and 10' rods for indy fishing. So much better than a 9 footer.
