What is the correct weight of Windcutter for the Sage 9140-4? I bought the 8/9/10 but then I heard that maybe I should be using the 9/10/11. I am a mediocre caster, 80 feet is pushing it. However, I do hope to improve I called Rio and the guy who answered the phone said I should use the 8/9/10 but he was just checking his cheat sheet like he didn't know for sure. Any help would be appreciated.

I fish the 9-10-11 on my 9140-4 and it works. I have a friend however that feels that it is too much line for the rod. The more I cast the 9-10-11, the more I think he may be right. Last week I got the opportunity to cast the 8-9-10 on the 8150 and that is a sweet combination. From what I could tell, this line might work better on the 9140 than the 9-10-11. My wheels are turning now and I am thinking about the 8-19-10 with the extended mid-section (see J_D's post above). Hmmm
