Although I don't own one I had a go with that rod on the Brora for grilse, the Brora doesn't need the longest of casts and I found the Lee Wulf TT 8 weight was excellent. A great grilse rod with extra length for line control.
Snap! This is the rod that I use with a Wulff TT #7 for delicate presentation in low and slow water conditions.
The #7 line is probably a bit light for the rod, but I use an overhead cast - you have to put a bit of oomph into the cast, though. I can't make a speycast work with this line, but that may be my technique. I've also used a #9DT on it, which worked fine. I would doubt it has the backbone for serious sunk line work, but for floating line where you want the rod length for line management it works fine.
