I took this rod and reel up to Michigan to hook into some salmon or steelhead. No luck on seeing steelhead, but it did well with salmon. The reel is smooth and has a nice drag. The rod seems strong, and overall its not very heavy for a 7/8 weight. I'm no fly fishing pro, but I'm pleased with the purchase thus far.
