For a trout-size rod I'd say there is even more reason to get Steve to build you a line, not just because there are not a ton of more commercial choices out there, but because of how fantastically precise the distinction he makes between rods for the line weights and lengths. If it is an ACR that goes double - he had worked a lot with Gary, and I'm sure he will have personal experience (and the data in his database) for any of those rods. He may even have helped to design it. Such a privilege to have that kind of (as far as I know unique) thing available!
BTW, it DOES sounds like what you want is an SGS scandi for tips. Watch out on the Klamath, there are a lot of monsters there that can ninja your "trout" fly! LOL
