Which Primo are you looking for?
May have several, yet to be built for sale.
Wrapping a couple of 8oz. prototypes, now due to the cold weather.

Hey K-tom, Are there several Zziplex's that will throw 8nbait? Does your 8oz. prototype throw 8nbait? Thanks, pelican man.

i was fishing with blaine o last november with tom beside us backcasting his quattro, let me tell you the man can toss it, but no rod will give you distance only technique and practice can do that.

Larry , like Led said the zziplex's are available in many lenghts .There are standard factory sizes but Terry Carrol will build a rod to just about any reasonable lenght that you desire . Led even has/had a syncro XL LT which was about 16' long .
There are many zziplex's that will comfortably handle 8Nbait but some are better suited to that weight class and a lot will also depend on your casting ability . IMHO any of the primo series in the right hands will easy cast 8Nbait 150 yards ,same for the Quattra series but you have to know how to use the rod... :)
