The GR70 casts a line perfectly well but there was something about it that didn’t quite feel right. It is a very tip-action rod that doesn’t bend a great deal during the cast. It felt very much like a 7 wt and cast a 7 wt line with no problem at all.
I felt this rod lacks a bit of feel and was quite hard to load with a 6 wt line. Once you have plenty of line out, it casts well enough, but I would recommend going up a line size to get the best out of it, which rather defeats the object of going for a lighter set-up.
