Did I get the right line?

I have a Echo Classic 6126 6/7 and have been reading and talking to differant shops about a line for this rod. Lots of differant opinions.
I live in the Vancouver BC area and mostly fish local waters, nothing very wide and what a line that I can use differant sinktips with. So today I picked up a Rio Skagit Versa-tip 450grs. Did I get the right line?
I haven't spooled up the line yet and can change it if needed.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I own the same rod and I've used that line on that rod and it works fine. I have also used the AFS 6/7 head (400gr), and the Delta Long 6/7 for dryline fishing.

Have fun and God Bless,
Todd
