That is a UK rod so it may very well be rated different then a North American rod.

The very best way to see what that rod likes with your casting style is to try a couple different sizes in a floating short spey demo line, say a 7/8 and 8/9 and decide which one feels the best for "you".

Whichever weight of floating lines feels best is the same weight of multi tip line that will feel best.

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
