    Default Century Stealth 12'9 - 9/10/11

    Got me one of these rods & have no idea what I should b using on it.....
    I'm used to a 15ft b&w Norway with a carron jetstream 65 or 75ftr

    Looking to go down the shooting head line road but not sure what works best with this rod?

    Any advice welcome

    Best thing would be to give it to me for a year and I'll work out what suits it best

    Read the reviews, there is plenty on here

    I believe shooting head is the way to go but relatively naive to the shooting head set up

    However, I do fancy a good crack at the right set up

    Has to be the afs 10/11 goes like a rocket but I do like the Scott McKenzie short 56 10/11 line on it and the old hardy mach 55 10/11 weight those are all my favourite lines on that rod the problem with heads on that Rod is you end up with so much running line as it is a beast at chucking it out so much.
    Give it your all and that you can sleep easy tonight

    Eric I've tried the 9/10 and 10/11 Afs thru the 14,I felt the 9/10 was okay but when I put the 10/11 the rod really came to life
    so maybe worth trying some heads in the 38 to 44g I sure db could sort you out with some to try

    Afs 10/11
    Scandi body #11 with either 10 or 15' tips or MOW tips for more depth.
    Awesome rod.
