I have the dh 6126 and I really love a 350gr Scandi. It has a very large grain window. I would imagine somewhere around 300gr is a good starting place for the 5wt. The deep flex of the original echo dec hogans feels as though the rod loads under its own weight... Thus my fondness of the lighter line. Really fun series of rods.
