  1. This is one of the lightest rods in the series relative to length and line weight, ideal long hours of steelheading in Northern California, the Great Lakes and other realms of our sport where hundreds of casts can exhaust the angler wielding a heavier stick. Although I rarely fish a 10’ 6-wt, this is one of my favorite rods in the series. It loads evenly and naturally, allowing the angler to dictate loop shape at any distance, equally suitable for floating and sinking lines, nymphs, dries and swing flies. Single handed Spey casts and powerful roll casts leap from the tip. Stillwater anglers will find plenty of spine for lifting full sinking lines from deep water and casting from float tubes or personal pontoon boats. The SA Infinity Taper is a natural fit for this long 6-weight, but anglers who prefer a shooting style line such as the Rio Outbound will marvel at the distance this rod achieves.

  2. This is my favorite amongst the 10 ‘ R8 Core rods. It is a very smooth overhead caster and doesn’t feel overly heavy in hand. It is a great fishing tool that will be equally happy on the river as it will on stillwater. It is very easy to control your loop shape at virtually all distances. It’s not quite as stiff as some other 10’ 6wt rods out there and therefore will make for a great single hand spey rod. I messed around with several lines and found the SA Amplitude Smooth Infinity WF6F to be my favorite. If you are looking to throw sinking lines with this rod I would suggest looking at the Rio Elite Predator family of lines.
