Line Rec for TFO TICRX 8wt Conversion

Hello everyone,

My question begins with: HELP!

I have went through the searches and totaly confused. I own the TFO conversion for my 8wt TICRX and I am set with an overhead shooting head which I can cast a counrty mile, well atleast I judge it as it. I am looking to use a skagit or AFS posibily???? I have a 400 and 500 RIO, 7/8 airflo skagit with tons of various weight tips. I know it is probably more my casting style which sucks but what line would you recommend not including the one mentioned. Or am I just heading the wrong direction.

For some reason I love the rod and want to find something which works for me. I caught tons of salmon on it and what a roar. Should I just stick to overhead becasue it works great for me.

Any help would be great

Thank You

Hey William, what line are you using overhead for that rod? I've been using a Rio outbound 11 and/or 12wt a 485-500 grains I think.

It works alright, sometimes - the stroke takes some getting used to and I end up with a lot of tailing loops.

Just wondering what (weight/length) line someone else is having success with?

I'll also be interested to hear if you are able to figure out a good spey line for it - b/c of the fast taper I would guess it will be better suited for a scandi head than skagit, but I don't know. definately takes a lot of grains to load it deep.
