I have the Lamson SS with an Orvis Hydros mounted on it. It is a great cost effective rod and it's all I need in a 6W. My 2nd cast with it I scored on a small redfish here in Sarasota.

Sweet! I also have the hydros and it's been great so far, especially considering the price!!

How do you like your SS at those close distances? Is there any feel? I remember casting the 8 a month ago and recall it being pretty fast.
Salty, sorry for the late reply. Just spent the last week in Mexico to escape this pandemic for a bit...

Like Shadowcast mentioned, the SS is good in close, at least for me and responsive and I accidentally underlined it with a 5W Bonefish Taper and it performed surprising well. It wasn't until I was grabbing the box a few days later that I realized my mistake and subsequently relined to a true to 6W line, but I haven't thrown a 7W line on yet.
