casting 13-footer that, under our old rating system would be an 8/9, but since
the shooting heads for the Scandinavian style of casting are rated by their
actual weight, we rate them in grams for Europe and Grains for the North
American market. It's designed to cast short heads Scandi-style, but is very
capable of handling a wide variety of casting styles with the proper lines. It's
a great all-purpose rod for salmon and steelhead, giving you a little more
distance with larger flies, even in the wind.
