I found it firm, fast and distinctly tip-biased. It didn’t work well for me with a 27 gram Rio Scandi and never felt loaded. I reckon it needs at least 30g and probably 32 or even 34g to deliver the feel I like.
Have and LOVE this rod!
Rio scandi versitip 15ft tips go nicely on it, in 7wt, but found the guideline 3d scandinheads really really nice, in 8/9.
it is a fast and powerful rod for a 7 wt, more like a 7/8 or even an 8. 30-34g casting weight for shooting heads depending on your own preference/style/ability.
