"OPST’s two-handed rods were designed by legendary angler and Skagit-casting proponent, Ed Ward. Although we’ve only tested the 8-weight, Ed nailed it! According to George Krumm, “The OPST 8-weight is light, strong, capable of launching big rabbit/marabou flies and sink tips ranging from T-8 to T-14, as well as handling the huge, steelhead-sized rainbows for which the Naknek is known.
