I have cast it with a 340 grain Meiser Scandi line and it casts very nice. James said it cast best with a 390 grain head.
This was my first time using silk. I had no problems with the wraps but the trim bands gave me major fits trying to get them to stay. I also tried a new supplier of agates, J.E. Arguello, and I have to say they are the nicest agates I have seen and requires not foot prep. The guides and top are snake brand universal and the seat is a Struble. The silk wraps are fish hawk gold with scarlet trim."
Bob had a chance to get to the river yesterday and sent along a couple images of the switch rod doing work.
I am hearing more and more positive reviews of this blank and at some point I'm going to have to break down and order one at some point soon.
