It was a great night on my favorite water with great friends. I am very happy to catch my first striper on my new Winston BIII X TH 11 footer. I used a 400gr Skagit Max short, an itermediate tip and 20 lb flouro. I used a large but sparse flat wing on a 4/0. I love this set up. It is light and powerful and I can make any cast I need.
