Indi Line for TFO Deer Creek Switch 8wt

i am trying to line up a TFO Deer Creek 11' 8wt switch with a dedicated fly line for indicator fishing.

I already have a Delta 7/8 for Spey but want a dedicated indi line which is what I'll be using this rod for 90% of the time.

Lines being considered:
1. Rio Steelhead Atlantic Salmon 10wt - 610grains head @ 66 feet
2. Airflo Speydictor 8wt ~600 grains @ 36 feet
3. Orvis Salmon/Steelhead Wonderline Generation 3 10 or 11 wt (specs unknown)

Does anyone know if Royal Wulff make a Long Belly, Triangle Taper or Steelhead Taper Line heavy enough for this rod? I only see them up to 9wt listed on their web site.

What other indi line should i be considering for this rod?

Does anyone know of any deals on DT10 or DT11 single hand lines? these would also work nicely with this rod for indi.

Call Bob Meiser! He designed it, and can point you in the right direction. He may even recommend a custom line from Steve Godshall. You can't go wrong with that combo!

I'd say that what you probably need is a short head line. The compact scandi sounds like a good suggestion!
