Anyone have any experience of the above rod?

Was wondering what the action is like, what lines it prefers, how it compares to the 6-piece version etc. etc.

I have the 13'9" 9/10# NT8 4 piece. I have had a lot of top-end fly rods in the past Sage- hardy ect but the NT8 is by far the best rod I have ever cast they excel with a short-stroke underhand cast combined with a rio versitip long its a match made in heaven.

Is it the 10wt rio versitip that you use on the13’9 9/10wt ?

Also have you used any other heads or lines on it ?
