The problem is that where many of us fish there's no counter where we can stand and order the size of fish we want like it's a sandwich. I haven't used a 12 weight in almost ten years now, but I can't say that I target big fish. However, I do spend some time oceanside in the Keys where a lot of the fish are >100#. I use a ten with enough butt to handle the job, like the Xi3 and my favorite for oceanside fish, the Beulah Bluewater 10/11. Not all ten weights are up to that task. In fact, I'd say most aren't, but some are and that's what I'm looking to use on the big fish.
