    Default Help with line Please!

    Building a 1088 4pc switch rod need help with line for swinging. Would the Rio skagit short in say 375 be okay or should I go with the 425? I also have not ruled out the Sa single hand stuff either but don't know what grain to get. Thanks for your time

    Default 8wt Switch

    I've have the same rod for about a week now and I would say go with the Rio 375. While shopping for a line, I got to test an Airflo Skagit Compact 420 with a long sink tip on it and it felt a bit heavy although I was making 60-70 foot casts with it,(singles, doubles, snake rolls and snap-t) I think I may have been overtaxing the blank. Remember, you're adding grain weight with a sink tip. I happen to like the Airflo lines and settled for Aiflo Compact 390. They also make a 360 grain line. The Manufactures recommended grain window is: 210 to 440.
