Look at batson rx8 blanks there super stiff and not that pricey.


I fish an RX7 blank for basses here in the city and as Paco suggested, the price is nice, so I dont mind too much if it gets dirty.

I love the loomis NRX for chucking sinking lines with half of a chicken on the end


Those hideous cannons are on sale right now for 25-50% off. Do you put 950 grain line on 6wt nrx to load it for 30 foot cast? Lol. Seriously though, it excels at tossing line distance.


I haven't fished one for trout but if you want distance and accuracy when casting a chicken this is the rod to get .

Another suggestion wood be the Beulah blue water in a 7/8. These stick are cannons. I have the 10/11 for musky and hands down the best streamer rod I've thrown.

on the cheap side my trusty old redington pursuit 8wt has been awesome especially for the price as a combo.

on the other hand i just got my hands on a mystic 10' 7wt m series, and a 7wt rio gold with it. only cast it with the line, but as for first cast thoughts the rod is definitely fast, and cant wait to get some weight on the end of the leader(should slow it down a bit), too bad everything bigger water wise is blown! though the lake is filling up with spawning bass so that will be the real test arena.

Arod was good until he got caught twice. Silly Baseball Player, Steriods are for Animals.

I thought I would have wanted a 7 weight... I regularly fish a Cabelas 3 Forks 6 wt and I've never had a problem with that either.


Not that relevant, but I actually find my Cabela's 3 Forks 6 weight casts better with a 7 weight line.

Check our "RISE" (Only online) I have a 10wt by them that I've teamed up with a Clearwater II Reel. Weight and balance very nice. Looking forward to abt 30 days away when I'll be a fishing the Salmon River.

Really like my Echo Ion 10' 6wt for big streamers. The "extra" foot really helps me in mending line and setting hooks from a distance. At $189.99 (list), it's not a budget-buster, either.

The Old Sage RPL+ 590-2 is my favorite 6wt meat/junk rod.

I saved up and got the 7wt SC Bank Robber and paired it with a Kraken. What an amazing setup. I took it to a striper tourney I fished in the fall since some of the guys like fishing schoolies because they're to old to hop rocks. I was throwing 6-8" articulated flies into some hefty winds like they were muddlers. The biggest I caught was 26" and I never felt like the rod was in any danger.
