probably MJC have more experience...
I have the same rod and I`m very happy with Scandi head Airflo 7/8 450 grains with running line. also I have a skagit head Airflo 6/7. I never use another line with this VERY NICE rod .
Thanks. Here's a very cool message I received directly from Echo as an FYI:
"Hey there Sean,
Thanks for buying the Echo2. We have some pretty cool line ideas for that
rod. That rod was built for Scandinavian style casting using the "A" tip.
This is a floating line, shooting head system for long casts over spooky
alantic salmon. For floating we built that rod using an Airflo 7/8
Scandinavian shooting head. With a shooting head you will need a running
line. I use the Airflo Miracle Braid running line. (less coils and Floats
nice) For an intermediate line we recommend looping on an intermediate
poly-leader. Now for your sinking line. Using your "D" Throw on an Airflo
9/10 Skagit Shooting head. The Skagit System gets you down quick and there
you have it. Your water Covered from top to bottom."
I thought that was very interesting that they responded so quickly.
