The Scott tidal 6wt(I actually hated every other model in this series) was one of my favorites from Scott, personally always preferred it over the meridian and sector 6. That being said, I love the wave series of rods. They’ve quickly become one of my favorites from Scott, the entire line up is awesome. The 6wt isn’t as beefy in the butt section as other Scott salt specific 6s but it does a phenomenal job dropping light flies, delicately, with accuracy. It has the power to drive through wind, is good in short, medium and has the ass to get out to 80(which isn’t that practical anyways). Big fan of the wave!
