Yes sorry, I'm giving AFTM ratings but don't suppose that is much use really. I'm not sure. I went onto the maxcatch website there and their single hand spey lines have no line weights on their website. Really frustrating so I'm not sure what weight it is.
Checking the hardy mach spey line in a 7/8 it says that the weight is 35g. It did feel heavy on the rod but not far too heavy.
Having used it and got on all right with it I'd actually have thought the 27g might have been alright and I don't normally use heavier lines than necessary. BUT given you are saying the 8/9 takes the 27g then I guess the 7/8 really should take something lighter?
Unfortunately it sounds like there is quite a bit of trial and error in order I think!
The rod feels very good though, lot of feel to it and was very surprised to see it has spigot joints.
Trial and error hits the nail on the head I'm afraid. I bought an Orvis hydros to try on the rod before I got the scandi short. I probably could have worked with the hydros but for me, the short scandi is just much nicer to use.
