    I've got one: Can I catch fish with it? He doesn't address that one!

    That guy just nailed it!!

    So, that leaves just one more question. Do we have a use for forums anymore?
    The only thing human kind ever learned through history, is that through history, human kind has learned nothing.

    I'm looking forward to trying out my Commando line for steelhead this fall in NY. I hope to breath new life into my dusty single handers. I might try all of those "can I do this?" scenarios. If I can do what I see other anglers doing with it, then it will be a handy tool for sure.

    I'm just not planning to use the OPST sink tips and I don't have many MOW or IMOW tips so I hope I this won't limit its use. I have mostly home made T_ tips.

    I'm pretty psyched. But like anything new... it's the anticipation of doing something that's better than doing it.

    I try to remember... there are no dumb questions.... only dumb answers. But this doesn't always apply.

    This was a clever video.....

    What specific rod/reel/line combos are you planning to use? Also a follow-up on how they worked out would be nice.

    Regards and good luck,

    Let's see I have 2 lower end single hand 8 wt rods to tinker with.

    - Cabela's Traditional II 10' 8 Wt
    - Redington's Red Fly2 9' 8 WT

    Backing - 100+ ft Gel spun
    Running Line - 100 ft Ebay .038" coated level taper fly line
    Shooting Head - Commando 325 grain
    Sink Tip - 10' T8 or T-10
    Tippet - 3' 10lb Drennan Fluoro
    Flies - Speys, Intruders, Egg Sucking Leeches, Sculpins, and Swymphs (swung large stonefly patterns)

    I may be over-lining the rod... If so, I'll use it on my 10.5' Echo 6/7 classic switch.

    I'll post some feedback once I've given it a whirl.

    Cheers,
