That's a 6wt, but some genius hit the 2 key rather than the 6. Enjoy!

Doug, Dan Craft has a 9' "2wt" in his lineup, too bad it's really a 7wt when you do the CCS numbers on it. It has an ERN of 7.29, making it a true 7wt. The AA is 74 making it super fast and stiff as a mop handle.

Lamiglas has that 2/3wt 9' Perigee. Not sure of the real numbers on that one, it's not been put into the CCS database yet.

Anglers Workshop has a 9' 2/3wt in their Chalk Stream lite series too.

Thomas & Thomas has the LPS in a 8'6" 2wt. This has been discontinued for 2009 but Anglers still shows they have them in stock. This one would be my choice for a longer 2wt.

Dorber has a 9' 2wt in their lineup of blanks. Not sure how these are though. The price is nice on the regular series of blanks.

Dorber also has a 9' 2wt in the Ultraweave series.

These are all blanks by the way.

Hope this helps.

Hi guys. Have a look at CTS - a NZ company that I have communicated with a fair amount. They pretty much offer the full range and are also prepared to build up blanks to suit your needs if it is not listed on their site. Blanks are also fairly reasonable. http://www.ctsfishing.com/flyfishing.htm. You can e-mail them at stephen@ctsfishing.com . I know from discussions with them that they make 2wt from 6'6" all the way through to 11'. If you want send me your e-mail address and I will attach a copy of their catalogue.

I know CTS makes some noce blanks, but I've heard they are not all that reliable in getting blanks here to the States.

Give Scott at Fishsticks 4u a call at 919-900-8998 - http://www.fishsticks4u.com/ I got his details from another forum I use. He stocks cts so you wont have to worry about shipping into the us from nz.

I appreciate all of the suggestions but this was, well a spoof. Andy nailed it right away. I wonder where someone would use a 9 footer and for what.

Man I didn't see that coming. I thought just like Andy that the BPS listing was wrong.

Jeremy,
Check out the model#, it says HC906...........I think that stands for 9' 6wt. I was just having a little fun at BPS's expense. Does anyone use a 2wt this long???? I would like to hear a review if someone does fish one.

Doug

Yep it is a 7wt. I read a post on the Rodbuilding Forum or Rodbuilding.org about that one, and the CCS database proves it. It's no 2wt at all. It's in the FT series, and many of those blanks seem to be under rated.

Doug, I'd kind of like to have a longer 2wt in the arsenal, it could come in handy. There are options out there, but most are unproven on the CCS database, so I'll shy away until
I know the real deal on any of them.

J.

I have an FT 8wt which I built up. Its a canon (ie sage tcr or tcx and more). For hellish long casts I use an 8wt line, but generally I fish it with a 9 and it loads real sweet. An acquaintance of mine swears by the FT 2wt which, as was suggested in this forum, he loads with a 6wt line.

Talking of using 9' rods. I typically use 8'6" rods in the 1-3 wt range (but I am very tall). (shorter) friends of mine are using 9' 1wts on our streams, which they load with a 2wt line. These rods a great for high sticking when fishing pocket water or czech nymphing. They also roll cast a treat. So there is a use for such rods.
