Last two fish were on the 8150-4, would really like to have hooked a fish on the new 9140. This rod has power to spare for sure, would like to have had a line with me that would have loaded it right to the butt section, 9,10,11 cutter was close with 150 grain tip. I am really thinking that the 9/10 midspey would do the trick. I love my old 7136-4 as well and have heard that the new model has more power in the butt section. Can't wait to get my hands on a demo and start testing lines.
