Sonik SK8 9ft 8wt for pike fly fishing?

Recommended Posts

has anyone tried the Sonik SK8 8wt fly rod? Is it a good choice for pike fly fishing?


I was thinking of getting one, or my other choice is the Airflo Bluetooth Nano 9ft 8wt.


Any views would be much appreciated.

I've now got three SK4XTs and an SK3 which I use for trout fishing.


I'm really happy with all rods.


(I recently broke the tip of one and Sonik were able to immediately put a replacement in the post which arrived next day).


I've not yet cast any flies for pike, but as I say (IME) Sonik rods do deliver well for their price and better than many rods at much higher prices.

I forgot to mention that I would also use it for saltwater and in the UK an 8wt is considered the best weight.


I contacted Sonik yesterday and they've just emailed back to say it will handle a 9weight line
