Not to take away from Danny's coming in-depth report...I was able to take my SP390, with the Tenkara Mini tapered line, from Chris out today. I've lead a sheltered fly fishing life as far a rod actions go...never cared - if it helped me catch fish it was good with me. But for me, this rod was amazing. Once I slowed down and didn't over think the cast it got to the point that...the word "magic" came to mind but really it was like lift the rod, blink and blink again and with no arm effort the the fly was on the water where you wanted it. Fish on is like a dance in your hand...if my 27SR grew to 12' 11" this would be how it felt. So much reach, so much fun and all standing in one just spot.
I really look forward to reading Danny's report now.
