Has anyone tried the Thomas and Thomas 1307 with the new CND lines yet? Did you use the 6/7 0r the 7/8? I current use the 7/8 MS for summer and am searching for a line that feels more like a Carron with a shorter head lenght (65' or so)as appropriate for this rod.

Yes, I have cast the 6/7 on it and loved it. I didn't think I would ever replace my 6/7 Delta Long on this rod but the Airflo is now in the box. If you prefer the 7/8 MS over the 6/7, you might want to look at the 7/8 GPS.

Sinktip.From the info I can gather the Airflow 6/7 Delta Long is 550 gr @ 65.5 ft. The Rio 7/8 MS is 560 gr @ 65 ft. The CND 6/7 GPS is 512 gr @ 60ft and the 7/8 CND GPS is 594 gr @ 65ft. My first inclination is to try the 6/7 CND although I'm sure the TT1307 could easily handle the 594 gr of the 7/8 (I switched to a 650 Skagit recently as per Bob Pauli and it casts like butter with Perry Poke type casts ). On a different point, do you mind the loop in the CND line?

Zail,

I have no doubt that the 1307 would handle the 7/8. It probably is somewhat like the A/B designation that Simon has for RIO lines. I just prefer the lighter load or A designation on the 1307. For those that like a B load then the 7/8 makes sense.

But then again I still prefer the 450 Skagit on the 1307 as opposed to the 550 or heaven forbid, the 650 :D

As for the loops, I ahve yet to fish the 6/7 enough to say if they are an issue at all. I will be surprised if they are though as I have been putting some fishing time in with the 9/10 GPS and the built in loop is not noticeable at all.
