That's a good looking rod!
Have you tried casting with it yet?

Are those old rods as tolerant of line weight variations as the new Eagle Claw Featherlight ones?

I haven't tried this rod yet, but I have another
It's slightly older, has regular snake guides, and had a sliding ring reel seat.
Both rods say that they're rated for an HEH (5DT) line, but I've also tried a 3DT, 3WF, 4DT, 4WF and a 5WF
The 5wt lines are too heavy and the 3wt lines don't load as well with the short line needed to fish in the tight places that I use the rod for.
I usually use the 4DT on it..... a Cortland peach
