I have been using a 7'6'' IMX 2wt for years and settled on a 2wt DT line for it. The line is spooled on a tiny Lamson 1.5 reel that matches the rod nicely. I started with a WF line but since much of the casting with the 2 wt is done so close in I found the DT to be a better fit. Your results may differ. The 2wt is a fine panfish rod, an 8'' bluegill feels like a 4# bass on your line!
