The Burkheimer Vintage 12 foot 8 inch 6 weight is the ultimate summer steelhead dry line spey rod. It is genuinely all purpose and can handle a wide range of scenarios. It would certainly make sense to carry both Scandi and Skagit heads for this rod, as it can handle both with equal authority. When the wind isn’t howling and dry lines are in order, this is the rod to reach for. long but not too long. Light but not too light. Arguably the most versatile 6 weight spey rod that Burkheimer makes.
