Hey Bob,
I recently purchased the Axiom 2 in a 10wt for calico fishing in So Cal. I tested a few different sinking lines and ended up going with the SA Sonar Titan 3,5,7 in the 12wt (500gr). Water load, single back cast and let it rip. It would cast almost the full line with no effort. This rod has a lot backbone and lifts the line with a heavy fly, effortlessly (exactly why i bought it). I also have a complete shooting head set up in the OBS 10wt 425gr. Ill be testing it out this weekend in the surf for stripers and ling. Ill post back and let you know how it performs. Hopefully this helps you out a little.
Trevor
