  1. Hi - I'm going to be visiting San Diego next month and wanted to give surf fising a try. Been reading up on the RIO 26 DC striper fly line to buy, but not sure what grain would fit well with a Sage Z Axis 7 weight? Does anyone own this fly line and give some advice?
  2. i guess it depends on the 7weight. i used that line a lot back on the chesapeake bay for stripers and threw it on my 8 weight (st croix legend elite) and it was perfect.i feel like it might be a touch heavy for a 7, but that's just me.
  3. 250 on 7wt rod.
  4. 250 sounds right. you could go heavier if you were boat fishing and could water load the backcast... but 250 is right on the money for a 7 wt.
  5. thanks guys! I'll shop around for one.
