I broke the rod in right Sunday, laid it on the tailgate & the butt section rolled off & dinged the butt cap
Lined with a Wulff TT, heavy beadhead nymph & a big ol Grumpicator, i procedeed to fish falling water in the wind, 40' is about it all the rod wanted, i have to get used to the mid-flex, i've fished tip-flex rods so long, gotta slow down some.
Despite the wind & operator error, the rod feels good, switched to a midge once the water fell, the rod was a little more responsive, switched to a soft hackle once it dropped even more & the rod really came to life, it is real sensitive, i set the hook everytime the line straightened on the swing haven't felt that on my tip flex rods.
Bottom line, nymphs/weight, the rod will be good up to 40', midges dries, soft hackles, i was casting up to 60' at one point with ease & it feels good with a fish on, even all those 4" rainbows the hatchery managed to dump at the dam.
I think we'll get along just fine if i can get the casting arm to work with me a little bit, seems to have a mind of it's own
