The new business

Spent a few minutes on the water this weekend with a new gun. The recently-redesigned 7127 from burkheimer. A quick little stick that I believe has dry line written all over it but definitely wasn’t opposed to throwing a 510 skagit. Originally when I had this rod in mind it was purely a summer slammer. Not so much the case

It turns out the little guy has some backbone and wants to fuck around in some winter water. So be it. This is the presentation series of their rods and it is awful prurty. Great cork, the wood and the nickel upgrades sit well and the finish on the rod is something that must be seen to be appreciated. Speysnobs can keep the door on the bus locked, I don’t want a seat… But Jesus…it’s sooo nice.

I’ll do some very serious field testing and report back.
