    I hear you. Used to be easy, chop your own or buy a Rio. Not any more. I'm still buds with a few rio reps though so I usually stick with their lines. Man it's a slippery slope with all those options out there.


    Yes. For me, with tips, lighter line = more fun and better fishing with brown 9140-4.

    The 9/10/11 cast ok, sort of. Tried a 6/7/8 and it had to have perfect timing every time. Bought a 8/9/10 that works really nice with a type 8 and huge fly. might have been able to do one line size lighter but all is well. The rod is slow. I know it's supposed to be the same as my 7136 speed wise but It sure seems slower. Once I slowed things down a bit the thing did very well.

    Thanks for all of the input now I just need some steelies to cast at.:beathead:
