Hi there,

I had a chance to spend some time with Gaelforce 13' 8/9 rod. The first thing it's action, it reminded me my B&W Powerlite Speycaster 7-9, bending deep into the cork with a very powerfull tip, and so light in the hand even for the 13' rod. I had spend couple hours with it using Gaelforce Equalizer 54' lines in #8/9 and 9/10, only with mono leader and small fly. Both lines worked well on it, of course loading the rod differently, but for my casting stroke/tempo i liked it more with #8/9. And I absolutelly falled in love in that rod!

but back to subject

1. Logically thinking, if the 14' and 14' 6'' in #9/10 should ask for one weight heavier line than 13' 8/9, I would believe they would be good with Gaelforce 54' 9/10 and 63' 8/9 (or even heavier depending on the casters liking).

2.Any comments on those two rods, them grain windows, action (if they keep the same action of them smaller 13' 8/9 brother), how do they compare each to other?

3. If those two rods would be capable of doing the same what my current favorite BW PS 15' 7-9 can do (I'm using it mostly with Gaelforce 54' 9/10 and 63' 8/9 and finding them perfect on it).

Tight lines,

Tomas

The 14ft 6 9 weight is a killer rod and every bit the equivalent of your 15
