So I just ordered a 12'3" BIIMX switch rod, I've only casted it a few times and I cannot remember for the life of me what line was on it. Winston reccomends line weights 493-524 grains for a Scandi head, or adding 50-70 grains for a Skagit head. This gives a widest grain range for a Skagit head of 543-594 grains. My question is; does anyone have experience casting this rod with skagit heads? If so what did you like on this rod? My limited experience with BIIMX rods is that generally these rods need to be overlined, I have a 9'6" MX 7 weight that casts an 8WFF line much better than a 7WFF and throws a 300 grain sinking line really well. Is this trend seen with the MX two handed rods? My thinking is a 625gr Skagit Compact would be a good start as I can always cut the head back to lighten the head. Any thoughts or comments to add would be greatly appreciated. I'll be moving back to the PNW and can't wait to get back into steelhead, east coast blows.
