RE:6126 Spey from Sage

Brian,

I had a chance to throw this rod with a 6/7/8 windcutter dry and it handled the line very well (and you know my feelings about the windcutter as a dry line). The taper is much quicke and the butt felt more powerful than the 7136. I would like to cast them back to back. FYI, you'll also see a very similar (? same) taper come out from a different manufacturer (not know for two handers) branded under the name of a NW guide this summer (sorry on a stack of bibles).
Rumor has it this s the "favored" rod of the Deschutes guides when the wind is down.

regards

andre
