I think I've been talked into keeping my Sage 9140-4 "brownie" but I think I need to get a new line for it to live up to it's potential. I'm using a 8/9/10 WC w/tips and it sounds like maybe a Midspey 8/9 or even 7/8 w/ tips would be better. Opinions? Thanks.

I use a Cortland 444 DT8/9F spey for dry line work, and a Sci. Ang. Mastery 8/9 cut for tips (recently redesigned). The Rio Midspey 8/9 is probably very similar.

I'm using a WC8/9/10 with tips . No problems. Removed tip 2 for overhead as was recomended and it casts fine.

8/9 accelerator

I have the newer greeny, I would barely call myself "experienced", but the Accelerator 8/9 w/tips seems to work well for me.

9140 Choices

The WC 9/10/11 is too much. It makes a reasonable Skagit head with tip two removed. I liked the TT8/9, as it had a nice light feel for the rod.

my new favorite...

The Airflow Delta Long 8/9 floater... love it! this is the closes thing i've found to Skilly's mystery line that i raved about earlier... can cast the head (65' with 1-2' in the tip top) plus 10-20' of running line... My sage 9140 greenie loves this line, and it's my new dry line set up... the deschutes is calling!!!
