RE: pinncale IM7 rod 8' ML
i've been doing steelhead for 10 years and I use a shakespeare agility 10'6. it's im8, so it's lightweight and strong. good backbone unlike many noodle rods that are like using a coathanger. for me it's the best rod around for jigging and is suited much better than others for float fishing, spoonchucking, etc. i have thousands of dollars of fishing equip, these are my favorite rods. i've bought many more expensive and prettier rods that i regretted buying for steelhead.
