Hi fellas.
Just wondering if anybody has any line recomendations for this rod. I have tried it with an Airflow 8/9.
I'm looking for a tips line...Skagit?? or Midspey length also???
Thanks.

Hey Ed,

I used Dave O'Brians rod last year for a few casts with the rio 550 on it and worked well..worked so well i even landed a monster buck on it.

My favorite of the BIIx two handers with a skagit line. I like 600-650 grains on that rod. The Rio 650 w/out cheater works well and the SA 600 is great. I actually cut 2'-3' off of the tip of the new SA 650 to customize. If you don't like cutting a perfectly good new line then either of the first two options will work great.

Cheers,

Greg

Thanks for the replies guys.
Just what I was thinking. I have a Skagit 550 I can add a cheater too. I just sold my Airflow 8/9. Bummer. Isn't that the case...don't need it when you have it but after you sell it:roll: :chuckle: .
