8'6" MH Spinning is Great.
Using braided line this is a very sensitive rod. The action never feels slow or sloppy.
I've only had my rod for about a month but the fishing has good and I've already caught a walleye, two legal pike, and two large small-mouthed bass. This rod, with it's fighting butt and stiff spine, feels like it was made for larger fish.
I gave this rod 5 stars because it casts farther than similar rods I own and it has a first-class action and finish.
My only complaint is that this rod doesn't seem like a natural side- caster. It is going to take some practice, and maybe a weight on the butt, before I'm really accurate casting this side-armed.
Nonetheless this is an awesome all-purpose rod for large freshwater fish. I feel like I got more than my money's worth with this rod.
(I've also written a review for the six-rivers noodle rod).

I had some reservation of going from a 7' to 8.5' MH rod. I am impressed with how this rod handles and casts. I add a Pfluger 6735X reel and 10 lb. fireline. This combo cast anything for a #11 original rapala to a 1/2 jig with ease. I definetly get more distance casting and suprisingly this combo is easier on my wrist than my 7 footer and 6740 reel. I have better control reeling is fish and the extra length helps with landing fish. I casted a jointed rap in the current. I felt the rap action clear in the butt of the pole. Great rod and a steal at the price. You do have to get use to casting with 2 hands, but that's pretty ease. The catalog price is 10 bucks cheaper than the on-line price.

Purchased this rod for salmon surf fishing. Threw a two ounce wait with it and caught five fish. Worked perfectly and was better than other rods I've used at a higher price.

Nice Fishing Rod
Very nice rod, I actually wanted the med. action rod but made a mistake and got the med hvy rod. But I tried it anyways and i like it. There is a big difference in the action but I still like the quality of the rod. I would recommend this to anyone. I like that i can use it for any type of fishing app. It is over kill for trout and other type of fish but it still works good.

Don't know if you have any answers yet. I matched with a Pfluger 6735X. It works beatifully. The rod tip is a tab bit heavy, but put the butt between upper arm and ribs and it handles easily. Hope this helps.
I just bought this rod for stealhead and I think I am going to like it. I trusted the store clerk to give me the correct weight. I the one I got is slow action, 1-6lb line. is that best for stealhead fishing on the manestee river ,mi?
