A rod can have many faces, we used two types of setups when developing this rod.
Type 1 is traditional WF lines or shooting heads at 19-20 grams 9-10 meters. This is perfect for fishing with normal size flies both for overhead and underhand casting.
Type 2, we used underhand casting style (touch and go) but with short extra light (24-27 grams including tip) Skagit heads. This will make it easy to carry big bushy flies that you normally use when fishing with larger doublehand rods. Also, if you use sinking tips this type of line will make life easier when you need to come down to the fish. A shorter leader is preferred for this kind of casts.
No matter the casting style you use this rod feels light and never gives up. Action type is to make long cast without tiring your wrists.

*Graphene is an allotrope of carbon in the form of a two-dimensional, atomic-scale, hexagonal lattice in which one atom forms each vertex. It is the basic structural element of other allotropes, including graphite, charcoal, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. It can also be considered as an indefinitely large aromatic molecule, the ultimate case of the family of flat polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

Graphene has many properties. In proportion to its thickness, it is about 100 times stronger than the strongest steel. It conducts heat and electricity very efficiently and is nearly transparent. Graphene also shows a large and nonlinear diamagnetism, even greater than graphite, and can be levitated by Nd-Fe-B magnets. Researchers have identified the bipolar transistor effect, ballistic transport of charges and large quantum oscillations in the material.
