Line help

Hey guys. Picked up a redington cpx 10'6" 5wt over the weekend. Not alot of info on these on the web that I can find . Curious on line recomondations for it. It came with a 390 scandi compact and a 360 switch float but I'm thinking these are heavy for it. Havent gotten a chance to try it just wondering if anyone else has what and what they are using for a setup thanks

I would say a 300-325 Commando Head, a 7.5' tip and three feet of 15# fluorocarbon. I might add that a 300g Commando and a ten foot tip with two and a half feet of tippet would most likely make that thing fire. You could probity do it with a 275 if you have your stroke down and give it a little underhand pull. BOOM!

Thanks guys! I'm kinda new to all of this. I have a 10ft rio tip I'm gonna try on it. What is the advantage of flurocarbon over mono like maxima I nornaly use ?

I posted the wrong link. Now corrected. Your rod is listed specifically.

Fluoro is thinner diameter, sinks easier, and a little tougher than mono.

It is less forgiving of poor knots and prone to breaking if your line is not well lubed when tying knots.
