I picked up a Loomis 13"4 Metolius streamdance 5/6 on Wednesday (the Meiser I was trying to get got sold out from under me). Since my cash was tapped I was stuck trying to get something I already had to work for a line. So I took an old 7/8/9 w/tips I had and cut 7' out of the back end of the middle section. What I was left with is a 47.5' line that comes out at about 430 grains. It sure casts nice for a quick fix; no trouble shooting 30' of line into a breeze with a piece of yarn on the leader, especially if I keep about 2 feet in the belly in the tip-top before I shoot it. It's especially nice for the single spey. The rod has a pleasant, moderate action with that line but definitely doesn't like to be "pushed". I plan on making up a line by RiverAddicts formula, but for a quick fix I think what I did does the trick and thought it might be a useful piece of information for somebody else out there.
