TFO DC 12~6 4/5 Scandi line?

So I picked this rod up from the Classified TFO DC 12~6 4/5

It came with a 360 Skagit Compact, I added a 15' Int. Poly leader and it tosses it out about 75'.

If you have this rod or something similar, what would be a the right Scandi line for this rod.

Try a 6 wt Airflow 40+, or an 4/5 AFS.

I owned that rod for many years,,, my favorite Scandi is 240 gr. RIO or Airflo, both cast the same.
Leader of about 16-18ft including tippet

You could use a lighter weight Skagit for smoother loops,, I like 300gr on this rod.

FK
