I just picked one up also, a 2 piece. I really like it so far, but have only practiced in the grass with it. Throws the SA Mastery Tarpon line very well, and I have a Cortland Tarpon line I haven't thrown yet since it's clear.

Is yours the 2 piece or 4 piece? Hopefully someone with some real tarpon wranglin' experience will chime in. I'd love to get some knowledge since mine is pretty new to me as well.

4pc. Have not purchased yet. Wanted to get some feed back on the 11 wt.
I love the 8 wt with airflo redfish taper. Thanks

If you're in Charleston, I would be happy to let you throw my 2 piece if you aren't in a position to test the other one out. I've heard the action is slightly different, though.

No personal experience, I have the Meridian in 8W, but I remember someone on here stating that S4S 11W was the best Tarpon Rod they've ever thrown.

Thanks. I live in GVL but have a place on Ashley river. Try to get there 1-2 times a month.

When Scott was developing the meridian they sold all stock of s4s for $200! I already had an 6&8 I picked up a 4&10 at that price. I just got a two piece 11 from a buddy, I haven’t had a chance to throw it yet though

The 2 piece in the S4s is very different to the 4 piece. If you're an expert caster the 2 piece is amazing. The 4 piece is still good but will not pick as much line off the water as the 2 or as a Meridian.
