What rod are you using your 10/11 on?

If its the twinline your talking about they come in heavy I uses a 9/10 on a powerful rated 10/11 spey rod and it flies
Ask as UK vs USA rod numberings frequently aren't the same. Lighter on the UK's vs 'Muricas. Hell, even here someone's idea of what is a '7' could be someone else s '8' or a heavy '6.' Probably why so many rods/lines are now matched up based on head length and grain weight(s).

If your talking the 'Next Gen' lines I agree. Closer to number matching North American rods.

Echo echo.

On my 7/9 Powerlite I use both the twinline 65' 8/9 and first-gen 65' 9/10...

That said, there seems to be a lot of variance in all Carron lines. Stampsteelie mentioned this when he lived in the UK and actually dealt first hand with Carron only to be very disappointed in weight disclosure and product consistency...

Just length and weight? Or durability too? Tried a 65 10/11 on my new toy (CND Fifteen) and WOWZER! The line can FLY!

I haven't fished them long enough to comment on durability. The first-gen coating is a little softer and casts nicer than the second generation. Second generation is more like today's rio (PVC) coating but still a little softer.

In the heat the first-gen carron is very very soft.
