Wish I could use a 9/10 weight but the 7/8 weight I bought may be to heavy for this mid west steelie fishing with light lb test leaders of 4-6 lb. We will see soon. Otherwise I would be interested. I think Loop makes some good stuff and that was a $ 400+ rod I beleive.
P.S. I have heard of some people using them in the saltwater surf advertise on some NJ fishing boards also.
