    Post Stealth Magnum

    Hi guys,
    I am looking at getting a Stealth Magnum 10ft 6wt, however i am not too sure about this rods tendancies, as i have heard mixed comments. It will be used mostly on the boat in competitionm, and will be handling long lines. Any opinions or views would be greatly appreicated.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    When the 10ft 6wt Magnums came out I tested one. I also tested a TFO Pro 10ft 6wt. The Pro is slightly heavier but bompbroof. Maybe try one before you decide on the Magnum.

    Had you been a bit closer you would have been welcome to take my 5WT 10' Pro for a recce, it's a nice rod, comfy casting long lines on a slower action (where you're not rushed to have to omplete casts as fast as possible) and definitely has a leg up over the Magnum.

    A few of my friends own the TFO and it is a great rod! however i personally find it a bit slow for my liking, and the price is pretty steep. But thanks for the comment!
