I've the rods either side, 13ft and 15ft, my friends have the 14ft V2's, wonderfull bits of kit.I need the 14 to make the set up!,lol.
Seriously any Guideline 9/10 head, it's better than you (or I ! ) will ever be!.Ok, not a Skagit rod, but with heads or medium Head Spey lines, it'll do all you ever want it to do!.Worth consideration.
I've the 13, 15, 16 and 17fters, love them!.
Pedro.

I own the 15': it's a dream with a shooting head properly balanced, no need to force, the rod do the job alone.
Best for strong big rivers ....

Have a few of the V3 LPXe and with Guideline heads you wont go wrong. I have the 9/10 in this rod and to me it's a very good springer and backend rod. Fish to 16lb no issues with large tubes on sinking shooting lines.

Think the 9/10 Might be more practical , 10/11 could be a bit of a poker

Hi 15ydspeycast, I bought this rod about five weeks ago and have used it about ten days for fishing pike perch/ walleye in 3-6m deep water in strong currents. Pulling up the heavy line is fine. OK, the tip could be a little bit stronger for doing this job. Casting into a heavy wind is easy due to the weight of he shooting head I did use. No lack of backbone. I do use flies up to 20cm. For this kind of fishing you need heavy kit (sink 4/5 to 6/7 and more). Half oft he casts are spey casts or perry poke, the rest is over head. This rod is just fine with the Guideline rtg 10/11 42gr, for both spey and overhead. With perry poke it will cast a mile. I do not use heavy skagit heads but have used several scandi lines between 42 and 48 gr. which are all spot on. The tip is a little bit soft, but the blank has got a lot of backbone. Don‘t get me wrong – „a bit soft“ means only it could be a little bit stiffer for my style of fishing. Even the 3D 11/12 48gr will fly. I like to balance the rod with an Danilesson 8-12 lw which is a good combination. An easy rod for fishing all day. Casting and line controll is a joy. For salmon due to f….ing Corona restrictions I will have to wait till….. The 14ft it is much easier to fish than a 15ft if you are ok with the shorter length. I don‘t know the other LPXE models and fish mainly Sage rods. If you know the Sage Method 14‘ #9 than the LPXE rod has got much more power. It will not bend that deep. You will get a very good rod for fishing Spey f.e. in March with this disgusting upstream winds. If you hit lucky this rod is not too stiff and powerfull to enjoy a 10 lb springer, in short it is a casting and fishing mashine.

Tried the 14' 9/10 and liked it, seems nobody has got the 10/11
I have the Guideline v3 / 14’ 10/11
rod will cast 620 to 660 grain shooting heads out of sight
Skagit 650grain with ease
Also it’s a lovely rod to use with the Carron 65’ head
It’s not poker stiff either
