Too light

Jim the RIO recommendations are
European 6126 - 3 6/7/8 7/8/9 6/7 7/8 for A and B
The WC 5/6 would be too light.

Thanks Ted

Been using the 6/7/8 for four or five years with that rod. Just wondered it the 5/6 casted well on it for the A casters. Guess I'll have to break down and buy one to find out.

I went from the 6/7/8 Windcutter to the 6/7 MidSpey. My local shop suggested that to me and I think that the rod casts better with it. The argument was that while the 6/7 is a bit heavier, the weight is spread out over a longer length of line.

Jim,

Just take any WF 8 and you are in the ball park with head length and grains. Have not tried the combo, but, if you like running a lighter line and like the rod to be quicker it's probably is doable. Distance would probably be the compromise.
