That's one of my favorite lines - 460 grains. I fish it on a 13' 7 weight Orvis Shooting Star but have thrown it on a lot of 7 and 8 weight rods from a lot of makers. It is super sweet on my good friends 13'6" 7 weight Sage One, and I have recently been casting and loving it on a prototype 13'6" 8 weight Orvis Clearwater Spey that I have been field testing for a while. It's a perfect match on that stick though it probably won't be until Fall that they become available. I've had the good fortune to play with plenty of Scandi lines, but the AFS has always felt pretty perfect to me. Be sure and put about a 15'+/- leader on the end depending on rod length. I like 10' Poly leaders with about 5' of tippet. Too bad for your buddy, but good for you! Great line.
