I've got this nice Winston IImx, 12'3" 7/8 weight rod currently loaded up with an Airflo Scandi Compact 510. I sometimes think that this isn't the right line for the rod. Sure, I agree, it could be just me. Oh, hell, it probably be just me, but I seem to have a little trouble getting this thing to fire for me.

Does anyone else have this rod with other line setups that they like? I'd like some advice on alternatives to try.

Thanks!

I tried a 510 and felt it was a little light so went to a 540 and it was a rocket. Probably go lighter if I was an expert caster but not there yet. Really nice rod.

Winston

Mine fires a DTX 7/8 head like a bullet. That is a 32 gram line. You are right in the wheel house with that head you are using.

No harm in going to the 540 grain line if that works better for you. I believe the 540 Scandinavia head is what I liked when I owned this rod.
