Here are the line recommendations for that rod from the 2 jedi that designed it, Mike Kinney and Bob Meiser:
Skagit: Airflo Skagit Compact 450/480 <> Tips to +-130 grains
Short belly Spey: Delta 6/7
Two Hand Overhead: Rio
My personal opinion is this. If you want to fish sinktips I would use a Compact skagit 480. For surface/near surface fishing the scandi lines work well. I personally like the Compact scandi 450. If you like a lighter load I'd back off one line size on both.
If your not sure if you like a light load or heavy test drive a couple sizes and decide which is the right weight for "you"

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
