- Q & A
Great Rod for trout and summer steel
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I put the Sage 4200 7/8 reel and lined this 4 wt with the OPST Commando 250gr. Skagit head and Lazor running line finishing out with Polyleader Trout tips. This rod cast's nice but it was a little hard to get used to as I had to slow my cast way down to keep from ripping the anchor. You can 2 hand cast line anywhere you want with no effort. I think this rod can even use a little heaver head. The 4wt Rod with 4200 7/8 has a nice balance with it being slightly heavy in the butt.
Perfect, if you know how to cast it.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This was recommended as one of the easiest switch rods to learn on. We got the 4wt, for catching big trout at long distances on the snake river. My husband and I are still learning, but when he gets his cast right, he says it's great. I still haven't hit the sweet spot, but I have only tired it a few times and he is a far more experienced fisher than I.
