The Helios II has been my main stick for the last two years, it is light, powerful, and cool looking. This rod in a 6wt is perfect for the small to mid sized bass rivers in the south east, it is also a great carp rod. Fishing this rod with an intermediate line is a joy.
Orvis Clearwater 907-4:
This is one of the shops most popular selling rods. Either becuase is is under $250.00, or just because it performs well in all warm water situations. It is a great rod if you are just getting into the bass game and don't want to spend a lot of money just yet. Bang for the Buck this rod is it!
Scott Radian 907-4:
This is a shop favorite rod. A couple of the guys at the shop have these rods as their primary bass rods. They are very powerful. With a slower tip, this helps load the rod in close. The powerful backbone of this rod make it easier to toss those bigger bass bugs at long distances. The Radian is a great rod for throwing top water frogs or even lightly presenting small flies to skitish tailing carp.
Scott Tidal 906-4
The Tidal was designed for saltwater, but it performes well in the freshwater as well. I do not have a lot of experince with this rod, however it is also a shop favorite. The 6wt comes with a full wells grip and fighting but, so its perfect for throwing streamers to bass. Being that it was designed for the salt, this rod is very powerful and packs a nice punch.
Sage One 691-4:
This is a great all around streamer rod, not only for bass, but it also works well for trout. Built with
Konnetic Technology®, meaning the graphite is wraped closer together. It is very accurate in close and at distance. Even though this is a 6wt, this rod performes well on all types of water.
Before the H2 this was my main smallmouth rod. The extra six inches really helped when wade fishing, it kept the rod that much higher off the water. The 966-4 is also the only 6wt winston makes with a full wells and fighting butt. I would say that was my number one reason for adding this one to the quiver. A great small to medium river bass rod, that can cast a sinking line with ease.
