    Too bad... I picked one up this year and have yet to test it out. It looks purty. Yeah, they're a little slow action... but I fish bamboo spey rods as well.... so I'm not expecting this to be a big issue. You just need to slow everything down. I was planning on a 450 grain Skagit short for starters....

    Cheers.

    Not new at this, this rod/line combo is a 'cannon' for winter steelhead fishing. Toss Salmon into that mix. 8# or 10# leader to the fly and FISH WILL FEAR YOU!

    I fish the 7139 most of the year and have come to love it. Actually I don't care to use any other rod for steelheading in the GL's.
