    I have tried a lot of lines on mine, all very good but the best is the 38g gaelforce by a mile.

    Simon, is that the 55 or the 65' Carron Jetstream?
    I also had the 14' jet and found it cast a wide range of lines, I liked th 55' 10/11 jetsream

    Stick a 9/10 Mach multi tip and watch it fly

    The rod is labelled as an 8 wt but it's nowhere near it.

    I have a 10/11wt AFS floater that should weigh 42g, but it actually weighs in at just over 40g. It flies off this rod.

    The Gaelforce shooting heads are designed to be used with 10' poly's, they are a wee bit thicker in the tip than the AFS. 38g AFS are also great, I think that 42g would kill the rod's action but each to their own, I like using 34g heads when it's not too windy, the rod, like most rods have a bigger grain window than the recommended ratings.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever weighed your "39g" Gaelforce head ?
