I am going to be spending some time in Hawaii (Oahu) a couple times this year. I would like to spend some time casting off the rocks for whatever I can hook and wading the flats looking for bones. I have plans to bring my ACR 11' 5/6. I know it's a little underpowered but I have an 8 and 10 weight singlehander to use if I am getting into stronger fish. My question is how to line the rod, mainly with overhead casting and stripping flies in mind.
Is something like a tropical outbound short what I want, or something like the Wulff Bermuda Shorts? I know the wind is an issue in Hawaii and most guys blind cast, so are either of those lines good in the wind or am I better off with something like a skagit and using water loading casts instead of overhead? Are the tropical lines worthwhile for Hawaii or can I use standard cold water stuff?

Thanks Bob, good to know. I have an SGS line for that rod that will probably fit the bill nicely then and several more with a few more grains that I can try out and see how they cast overhead on that rod.
