I just recently purchased a 13ft 8wt TLR rod from Cabelas and was hoping to get some help finding a line that would be a good match. I wanted to use running line to a shorter Skagit head, only because that is what I've been told would be best, not because I actually know why, I've practiced a snap T cast and a double spey with my single rod in preparation I don't have a lot of funds to buy a lot of different lines. I emailed cabela's about the grain window and they suggested a 202-218gr line. It's a lot of information to take in and I'm kind of in the dark and was hoping for some help. I've never casted a two handed rod before and have done everything in my power to avoid buying another toy but couldn't help myself. Thanks guys. Edit: So I did some digging and saw on chart on Rio's website that the older cabela's 13ft8wt with the same model name had a grain window of 525-575 which makes a little more sense to me. I am thinking about going with the Airflo compact skagit and whatever running line comes up first for cheap. Does this make sense?
