It's more about the line and the caster than the rod. Most 5wt labeled rods can carry a whole floating AFFTA #5 DT.

I've carried a whole #6 GPX DT (6.5 AFFTA) with a Scott G2 9' 6wt and it is not the stiffest rod around.

There are rods that practically no-one can do it, but most rods could be used to do it.
