the rods get longer, casting distance increases and this rod is no exception. It
will handle heavier, longer heads and has no problem turning over big flies.
It's a great rod for fishing winter steelhead, fall salmon or any of the great
Nordic rivers for Atlantic salmon. As with all Stinger Series rods, this rod is
rated in grams for Europe and grains for the North American market. Under our
old system this would be rated as a 9/10. It's our best all around power fly
rod for fishing the swift deep runs anadromous species call home.
