I do not spey fish much (pretty much just do it during primo dry-line season), so I do not have a lot of experience with different rods or lines. Three times over the last couple years, I have gone into local reputable shops looking for a line, and all three times, the grain weight recommended to me has been on the heavy side, even outside of the window of the rod the line will be for. This has been both for scandi and skagit lines. When I went in to get a scandi line for my 7wt rod, I was initially recommended a 480 grain head, 30 grains higher than the recommended skagit line. What gives? Do guys in their 20's or 30's like to bend the rod until it cries, so they pegged me as someone who needed as many grains as possible?
