I wouldn't say it's for everyone but if you like two-handed casting and fishing, it's fun and makes things very interesting. For stripers, jacks, trevally and soon roosterfish I think it's a no-brainer.

You will have fun with your two hander on your trip. The 8116 is a true overheader, not a spey rod, and is very versatile at short and long range. My description of the lines and casting techniques was obviously meant to let you know more about the wide range of applications. I assumed that you were aware that Bonefishing is a stealth sport and that you would practice likewise presentations with your rod. A nine wieght single hand line will work on your rod as well.
