Orvis short head spey, 6wt or? 48' head/364 grains

I'm not positive what a new condition/used line is that arrived with my used metolius trout spey.

Yellow head thins/narrows to a green running line. Yellow head length ~48' +/- and 364 grains. I can't find any Orvis short head spey line spec's to check this against. Anyone have this spec? Will try it on my metolius spey tomorrow but curiuos on this line designation confirmation. The 364 seems within range of Ed suggesting a 406 target or similar overall for a line and tips for the rod.

Hey Happy.
Sounds like the specs for my Windcutter 5/6 that I use for my Metolius.
A line that I tried that I really want is the CND 5/6. Really brings the rod alive.

Wow, yeah, spot on with Simon's posted WC 5/6 info, 48.5' with 365 grains (body plus Tip 1), good to know! So you got a chance to try the CND gravity point with yours and it rocked. I saw one of those on sale a while back but couldn't think of a use at the time! Dohh. Maybe their will be one around tomorrow at this gathering with someone to show me how to make it sing.........Orvis might work fine for me now, will see. Thanks a lot for the feedback, much appreciated.
