Lining an Echo TR 13'6" 8 wt.

Hi everyone, I saw a recent post about lining a TFO Deer Creek Series rod that resulted in some GREAT feedback, advice, and suggestions.

So...what are your thoughts on lining the Echo TR 13'6" 8wt.?

Anything helps! Cheers.

About as much as you can lift. Seriously, the rod will huck a tank - though not with the prettiest loops. In for the answer though as I think I'm a bit overlined on mine and wouldn't mind seeing what the experts think.

The AirFlo 540 scandi compact is a pretty good match for that rod, and the 8/9 Delta is very good as well. The TR has a wide grain window, depending on how hard you push/pull, so I would suggest fiddlin' around with scandi weights of 480gr and up, and short-belly weights of 520gr and up.
