After stumbling aross this forum and sifting thru many reviews, I wound buying a Colton Torrent 911 reel and a Tradewinds UD82 10wt. Since I only had a 9wt line available, it cast the line ok but I wasn't really happy with it so I had Bob send me a 9wt for comparison. It cast the 9wt line great but I decide to go to Cabelas and get some actual 10wt line to give the 10wt a better test.


Holy crap! This rod casted the new 10wt line as if it was shooting lightning bolts out of the tip. Using the CCS measurement systen I originally thought the 10wt was actually stronger than a 10wt but I soon learned that the upper section of this rod casts 10wt perfectly and it's the stout lower butt section that was influencing the rating. If I had listened to Bob the first time I could have saved money.


There's not too many alligators, tuna, or sea turtles here in Michigan but I think I could land them if there were. The salmon don't stand a chance next fall! My thanks to Bob.
