Default Wanted - Nymphing Rod / Hanak SLT

Hi guys, as above.

I'm the market for something to use throughout the winter months throwing some heavy nymphs and using a few different nymphing techniques for Grayling.

I currently have a Winston B2T 9ft #4 and I don't wish to use these throughout the winter (tart )..

A 10ft rod is preferred, id love a Hanak SLT if anyone is willing to part with one but if not, I'm open to see what you guys have for me.

Speak soon,
S.

The SLT's are quite soft for their rating, I have the 964, and wouldnt want to be lobbing heavy/heavy stuff with it.

Really? I thought they'd be ideal for throwing the heavy stuff, not sure why I thought that though. Think it's just because it's quite popular.

They are a nice rod, and as described, very light in the hand. All I was sort of saying, was if you were fishing heavy, 4mm + 3mm dropper perhaps, then maybe best avoid the lighter rating rods.

I've also heard some good things about the 10' orvis recons.

Sean you might be better off with a cheaper 4 weight for throwing tungsten about like a robot , look on Garry Evans he has some decent Loomis / Franklin rods in different sizes and weights starting around 100 pounds .

I only use my Hanak Superlight for light nymph / spider and dry fly work in Spring / Summer .

I've got one of the original Greys Streamflexs Sean in a 10' #4 if that would be of interest? I'm back home on Saturday if so and can do photos of course, but PM me if interested by all means.

Cheers,
Alex.

I have a 10ft 3 weight Superlight in mint condition if interested. It's fine for all nymphing applications IMO. PM if interested.

I have a H2 10 3# perfect for what your after has more back bone than the SLT - I have the 9.6 3# SLT

Only reason I might consider selling is I also have the 10.6 3# ESN and I have grown fond of the longer rod
