I have the 550 floater right now, feels like it would take alot more grainage. I was just going to use a head because it what Rio offers in the heavy weights.
I was thinking a very tight, all underhand stroke; roll it up, anchor next to the boat and fire, single spey style.
Considering what it is, its a very sweet casting rod, even with the floater on it. Would like to try the lighter weight models.
