    So far nothing but pleased with the streamer x, on the 8wt I run a titan long float and a titan sonar triple d s7. The 6 is a titan long float and a titan long s6 sink tip.
    The 8wt is used for pike and walleye. The 6 is my trout streamer rod. I would base the wt you go with nor based on the species but the flies and how much weight is being added.
    I throw everything from 2" clousers to 9" game changers. I'm hoping the echo musky works on those big flies better than others I have tried in the past like a 10wt method, bass 2, motive, payload, nrx, cross current. I just found them all alot of work to cast and not feasible for all day casting. Not thst there won't be a big rod that isn't fatiguing to cast.
