new 7 wt setup review...

Just got the reel. A Galvan Rush 6. Really impressed with it just tinkering with it out of the box. Simple, clever drag system, looks like a workhorse. At this early stage, I am very happy. Looking forward to putting it through the paces...

Will post more after receipt of rod... an xi2...

well, my sage xi2 (9'6" 7wt)came in, and it is far and away the nicest piece of gear I own. It matches up well with the galvan rush, which I continue to marvel at for its price.
the setup casts an airflo floater pretty well. The rod is much livelier than I expected. The "ultra-fast" reports I had heard made me a little scared it would be a plank, but there is a high degree of line feel. Anyway, I can cast a good deal further with this rod than I ever have before - I had the backing in my hands and a fish was not responsible (sadly).
I did manage a small pickerel on my first wet-trial with rod. It took a popper as my daughter looked on from her stroller.
Looking forward to more fishing with my new canoe/lake/schoolie rod.
