Skagit line

WC or Mid Spey bodies without tip1 & tip2. How good (or bad) they work as a skagit line? Rio web site tells you the weight of the total head. Can anyone tell me where to find separated grain charts for WC and Mid Spey bodies, tip2 and tip1? Thanks

You can find the info you are looking for on Mark Bachmann's website:

Scroll down the page about half way.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB

And yes - the WC bodies are great skagit lines - the 11/12/13 I think weighs in at around 490 grains and is around 27 feet long - a great line between the 450 and 550 skagits.

The lighter WC's are great on some of the light line 2 handers coming out recently

I guess I did forget half the question. Must not have been "coffeed up" as yet. I agree with Rick.
