line recommendations for anglers roost IM6 11ft 3/4 two hand build up

hey folks, especially any of you light two-hander/switch specialists...

just finished my second rod build, and my first two hander build.

i built the rod on the Anglers Roost IM6 11ft 3/4 wt blank. the brown blank color....not the speckled black (IM12). a two handed figuration....boy this stick is going to be interesting !

im looking for anybody who has built on this blank? older posts seemed to be minimal in discussing lines for this particular blank.

what specific lines have you tried and failed, failed again, and then succeeded with? grain weights please. ...descriptions of any customizations to the taper,etc

how were you fishing them....sustained anchor, T'n'G, nymphing, overhead? what about terms of tapered mono specs & polyleader length & sink rate?

What types of flies were you able to manage?

........feel free to wax prophetically, please!.....

I figured I'd see what other folks may have tried. thanks in advance for sharing the intel on this blank.

Hey Jason sounds like a nice rod you built. The advice that Rickbjr gave sounds good, I've read good things and have good things to say about those lines. I'm looking for a spey line for a 5wt that I will be building this winter. I will be ordering a Sage or Winston kit from the Roost also. Any advice going into the build that you might have? This is only my second rod build, but the first time buying from the Roost.

My fishing buddy and I have been throwing the new Airflo Switch Float on the 3 and 4 weight Echo glass switches and the 4 wt Decho with great results. The #3 line is 210 grs over a 26 ft head.
