As Harley suggests getting a custom cut line is good advice.Your spey guy's recommendation of 375gr for the Platinium seems light and is probably correct for someone with great underhand technigue,but not for the rest of us.I'll give you an example.A couple of years ago I purchased a used 13' 8/9 underhand [Scandi ] rod.It came with a perfectly matched custom cut line of 448gr.The combination did not perform well for me.I then tried some heavier lines and settled on two,a 480gr compact scandi and a 510 steelhead scandi.Both these lines made the rod come alive for me.As you already noted a line of over 400gr would probably be better for you on the platinium.
