    I think im going to give mile barrio a shout about reccomendations for my rod as for the money his lines are hard to beat. I use the iss on my lpxe and it goes like a rocket with little to no effort.

    Thanks for your concern RE: Rio SSVT line. I had one anyway for another rod (but the shop wouldn’t have known that at the time). I agree -it seems it can be confusing with no uniform line weight system for switch rods with some being rated for salmon lines and others being rated for trout lines. It’s a good job there is a recommended range of grams/grains making it easier to interpret.

    If your Switch rod is rated for salmon (most are), then use the same numbered SSVT. If it is rated for trout then go down 3 numbers on the SSVT, i.e if the trout rod is rated 7/8 use a #5 SSVT
