In the past I've tried the 7/8 with a variety of lines and found that when going conventional, go light. It's been a while since I've last played with the 7/8 and conventional lines, so there's a lot of dust on the neurons. I don't have an opportunity today to shake the dust off with a trial, but if you're not in a hurry, I can do some testing over the next few days and report back.Do any of you have experience fishing these rods with skandit, scandi or mid-bellies? Any line recs for the 13'4" 7/8 would be appreciated. Thanks.
The 40+ Extreme is a full line which I find advantageous when working a mix of short to medium casts as there's no loops sliding in and out of the guides. It's worth taking a look at down the road if a lot of your fishing is done with the back end of the head in the guides.Thanks Peter, I owe you one. I'll sometimes stand back from the river and make a few overhead casts with a short line when I enter a run, but then I get to spey casting as soon as possible. I wasn't familiar with the Airflo 40+ Extreme but I'm going to look into them further. I think I'll start with the 390 compact scandi. I'm pumped to try it out. I think this rod could be awesome year round. Thanks again, I really appreciate.
