That 460 will be too light, I have some Hardy Swift 7 weights that use 475 lines and although I've never put one on the Guideline I know it would be too light. I base that on the way the 541 loads the Guideline.Awesome...that’s exactly what I was looking for....it seems to be a true 8/9 then...someone told me they used 460ish grain Scandi head on it so I wanted to make sure.....I have an old AFS amd SA Scandi extreme at 520grains that I’m going to try out.
I'll have a look, I thought I had one corralled here a while back but the seller balked on posting internationally to me and I became sad..............Did u check the other forum? That’s where I found this one!
thanks for your insight, sounds like the AFS will be spot on at 520 grains. Thats what heard about this particular model as well, and I feel pretty lucky to have picked it up.I had this rod about 10 years ago and it's definitely a true #8/9. I used Guideline dual density heads and DDC Connect off of this in #8/9 at the time. Rio AFS will work well with it. Any decent scandi head in 34 grams will work off it. I had 4 LeCie's at the time and this model was definitely the pick of the bunch, fantastic rod. I regretted selling mine for some time as I found it a very difficult rod to replace despite trying numerous rods in this length and line rating. A mate still has his...tried to rid him of it a few times but he's having none of it. Enjoy it mate as it's a gem
Oh yes I've been a pest to everyone both here and the American board for years. I'd love to have you on the NA forum, I've been trying to build up the 2 hand caster type salmon and steelhead population there for a long time. I don't try forumnapping people from the SP site because that would not be cool but some find their way on their own. LeoM is posting with us a little now and then.Thanks for the heads up And, ill check out the NA FF forum. That is one light set up!
I joined this forum to improve my tying and pick up new tube techniques. There are not too many tube tiers on SP so its been great so far, I have learned lots.
I see you are an administrator here! Wow!
Tight lines my friend,
