"I wanted a rod that I could carry anywhere in the South and Midwest to chase my favorite game fish, Smallmouth bass and this rod delivers! I went with an 8ft 6/7wt and it's one of the first rods I've used that casts either line weights equally well. From terrestrials on long leaders and 6wt lines to 240gr full sinking lines. The rod does it all and does it without feeling like too much rod/swing weight! Love my Smallmouth Special Steffen Bros"
