Meiser 15' Highlander Classic build


Recommended Posts

I recently finished my Meiser 15' 7/8/9 HC build just in time for my trip up northern BC. It turned out much better than expected! I really enjoyed the whole process from start to finish. I bought the blank and the builders kit from Bob and turned the handle myself on a drill mounted in a vise. I've since added some oil to the burl portions of the handle to darken it up a bit. I've also got a 13' 6/7 MKS to build now as well!

I've got the Skagit side covered for this rod and I'm now looking for a mid-long belly line. Does anyone local have something in the 60-65ft, 630-730 grain range sitting around collecting dust they'd be willing to part with? I'm looking for Gaelforce, Netxcast, Ballistic, CND, Carron, SGS, Snowbee or RIO lines preferably. I've tried a 55' 8/9 Ballistic Vector (which is money on my 13'6" 8wt) but it feels a bit light and short for the bigger rod. I would also be interested in a shorter Scandi line as well. I've been scouring Spey Pages but it's tough right now trying to get people to ship from the US.

Cheers

Yeah I've talked to Tim a couple times and tried to buy a couple of used ones from Spey Pages. I had a chat with Bob Meiser and he actually recommended the Bridge lines. I think OFF sells them locally. I'm looking for used lines first to try and save a few bucks (and can re-sell them for minimal loss if I don't end up liking it or wrong weight) before purchasing a new line.
