I just bought this rod from a guy, it has only been lawn cast and he even gave me the mid belly line he used and said it matched very well. I'm curious to know what grain head I should look at if I wanted to use a skagit with this rod as well. I'm thinking 500-525 should fit the bill.


anyone that owns or has cast this rod please chime in. I have googled it and cant find anything about lines for it


Thank you :D

Give Steve Godshall a call!

This is a 'Classic Rod' and one of the best designs that ever came out of Sage. He would know this rod/lines backwards and forwards.

I have the GIII 7136-4 Brownie and like a 480 skagit head, and it will definitely cast 525. Not much more though. The old mint green Delta 7/8 530 is as heavy as I've cast on it. The Delta Long 6/7 510 is a nice match also.

Good to see I was in the ballpark thinking a 500 would be good. The guy gave me a Nextcast Winter Authority with the rod. I plan to use this line with the rod primarily but its always nice to have a skagit "on deck" if I need it


Pat Av - you have the old 3 piece then ?

Number of 'bits' in a rod is easy.

Rod will be described as 'what-ever' in line weight (first number) second set will be the length, the last (after the dash) is the number of sections. This is pretty universal as far as I've been able to tell.

I already know this info LoL I wasn't able to find anything on what kind of Skagit this rod would/could chuck which is where my question came from :D

Scott does it the other way…like my other favourite the LS2 1307-4 might be some other manufacturers doing that as well.
