The standard line that comes with the outfit casts streamers with ease. I fish for large mouth bass and I was able to throw #2 and #6 bass and steamer flies.
I was initially concerned about the fly line but after casting for 3 hours I can't tell you the difference between this and SA GPX. I was able to shoot long distances in the wind and turn over large flies. That's all we want right?
I lost my TFO 8wt so this was my replacement. Comparing the two rods the quality is good. Its not like my TFO but I can't find anything bad to say. Its lite and is a fast action rod. The only I miss from my TFO is that this rod is missing the aligngment dots on the sections.
The reel is plastic but its light and does the job. If you are expecting a 200$ quality reel you will be disappointed. No complaints, the reel hold my line well!
Perfect starter rod and replacement for the weekend warrior. Out of the box you can fish.
