    So should I use it with the sinking line or not?

    I don't know anything about that line, but if it is the same grain weight as a 7wt. floater- then I don't see why not. (make sure you actually check the weight though b/c often sinking lines weigh more than floaters of the same AFTMA designation).

    Was me, I'd start with a 5wt or 6wt floater and get comfortable with the rod and its action before anything else. Since we're not sure what weight line either rod was designed for, I'd steer well clear of using a Rio Deep Seven on it.
