My favorite line so far is the 225 gr OPST head. It's amazing to me to be able to fling 12' of T-8 and decent sized fly on a 3 weight but this head makes it happen. It also is by far the best choice where I fish when the wind comes up.

For example, I also have a 210 gr Rio Scandi which casts nicely if I can resist the urge to not blow anchor. But if there is ANY wind, forget it. The tip gets blown all over the place.

But the OPST handles wind nicely. Casts tips. Casts far. Handles the largest flies. The new short-head skagit is a revelation on the trout speys in my experience to date.
Try 50# P-line hyrofloat for a running line! I use it on all my Trout speys , shoots a mile!
