Anyone have any experiance with the 796 XP. Sage had a killer key employee promotion that was even more money off their normal key employee discount so one of the rods I got was a 796 for super cheap. On this special promotion they, sadly, did not include two-handed rods.
Anyways I got the rod today and can not wait to try it out. What should I expect? I normally fish my 1087 GL3 for steelhead when I am not playing around with one of our demo rods. Should I throw an #8 line on the 796 XP like I do the 1087 GL3? Any input is appreciated!!
