    Both of us primarily used the Echo SR while experimenting with these lines. That is how we figured out how valuable they can be used for swinging flies. I had one of my best days last Fall on a local river experimenting with one of the demos a the 6 switch. When nymphing with the switch and trying to get distance you have to be very patient and let the rod load the line. From a boat they work great. I have not tried this line with the Decho, rather the TR and Classic. They work great on both of them.

    I have been searching for a new line for several months to fill a Meiser reel, which was a Christmas gift. This line sounds too good to be true. I just ordered the 7wt 420gr Speydicator for my 7 wt ZA switch. Will this line work with my 7133 Burkie? Just sounds too light as I use a 540 gr compact skagit. If it works with both, I will truely be amazed.

    the line will work for both, just make sure youre aware that the "sweet spot" for your switch might be different than that for your Burkheimer. if you plan on using the same line for both 7's, i would take a permanent marker and mark off where each line casts the best, e.g., one line for the switch, and two for the spey.
