I was perusing the Nexcast website the other day and it looks like they have not only changed up the website, but the specs on several lines have changed. I mainly was looking at the FF45, Steelhead Finders and Zones. One thing that jumped out was the line recommendations / grains seemed to change, with grains going down for a given line recommendation. For example, Steelhead Finder 6/7 used to be 515 grains if not mistaken, now 450? Just curious if others have noticed this and what was the reason for the change?
On a separate note, I hit the water for the first time in a long time recently and cast a couple new-to-me rods with older version Nextcast lines. While the casting session was brief (had the six month old pup with me), the 575 Zone at 28' with 12' T10 Flo tip cast well on a 8134 Burkheimer. The 515 grain FF Steelhead Finder 6/7 (actually 508) with 12' T8 OPST tip was pretty sweet and easy on 7132 CND. Look forward to spending more time on the water fishing these combos this winter.
