I use both rio and airflo on my single and two handed rods, but they seem pretty equal. On occasion I'll go over one weight, but on my softer/slower action rods, it seems like I'm stressing them. I stick with what the rod makers recommend. On my Loop Spey rods, they recommend smaller weight lines for the rio than what the rod says on the shaft. Almost 1 or 2 weights less, but I think that’s because those rods are designed more for the shooting head systems like Loop adapted lines. Loop lines are actually tailor made for each rod. I think rio is comparable, but airflo is cheaper and easier to cast. I like the windcutter and mid spey lines on my Spey rods though, but that is because the extra mid section comes out and I change up tips and shooting heads like the DC big boy. It all depends on the user and what he likes and what works for him.
