Has anyone bought/tried/tested one of these rods.
What would be the best weight/grms line for the 7/8# 12ft rod
Thanks in advance

I've got the previous Atlantic 13'6" #8/9, also on a Guideline blank. Spoke to them re best line weight and they were very helpful. If you give them a call I'm sure they'll sort you out.
Love the rod.

I have the previous 12ft 6 " Atlantic 8/9 cracking rod ;

Isalar.....I'm sure the 13ft 6" Atlantic is 9/10 rated ?

As I have the 14ft 6" Atlantic too rated 10/11

The Norris NI rods were available in 3 lengths too , must of sold out ?

ALL Norris rods are built on Guideline blanks

A pal of mine has the 12 ft N1, he bought it paired with a Rage head & Norris's recommended a size heavier than the stated rating, which he has found to be a good match; he wanted a shorter rod/ head combination for when he was fishing monkeys or any fly needing to be worked in slower pools.

I'd just ask the shop for their recommendation as they know it better than anyone I imagine.

It's a good rod & quite powerful for its' length/ rating; my mate caught a couple of good fish from the Wye on it last season.

Regards, Tyke.

The 13ft 6" is in fact 9/10 rated as you suggest. The rod tubes were marked up 8/9 in error. The rod blank is most efficient with a 38g head :thumb:
