Just wondering what you guys are using on this rod?
I have no need for any sort of distance as it’s more about presentation.......
I like the barrio lines but Interested to hear what others opinions are?

I have the 11ft 6wt (not the 7wt but this might give you some ideas).
I like full lines for presentation with this rod. Both the guideline Xchange WF Tri Tip #8 (which head is claimed as weighting 19 grams but actually weighs 17.5 grams) and the loop evotec 105 #7 which head weighs about 15.5 grams.


Both are perfect for me for double hand or single hand spey or overhead casting.

On the old Loop site the 6wt was advertised for 20 g and the 7wt for 22 g.
20 g seems too heavy for me but that's only personnal preference

I use an a short 33ft 19g rio shooting head on
mine along with the rio single hand spey 7 weight. I find both to be spot on for me..

Plenty lines work well on this rod. Anything around 19-22g (28-33ft). My favourites are Loop SDS switch kit in 7wt, Barrio 22g switch line, Gaelforece 5/6 spey switch line and for overhead the Guideline Bullet WF8.
Very versatile little rod.
Cheers Diarmid.

For bigger flies you can try to use skagit 450-480 grain. Cast like crazy...
Overhead - #8 weight line
