I ran a variety of lines through the Asquith 8136 and it managed them all similarly well. From an old 75′ intermediate long tummy up to a 570 Skagit, the rod dealt with all with ease, regardless of the condtions. When utilizing a Scandi head, the idea recuperated like a rifle shot. When utilizing sinking lines, the rod plucked them out of the water. This rod can do all of it.
