34g Gaelforce Equaliser shooting head goes great on it. Never tried any other lines but Neil W on the forum has one so should be able to point you in the right direction.
Cheers Diarmid.

I was test casting this rod with my own shooting heads, a Salar Finder 40 F2 and 13 in 8/9, around 32-33 grams (Belly) and coupled with 15’ tips RIO #7 in S3 and S6.
It was casting fine with that combination, but didn’t find the wow factor in casting it side by side to my other rods I already owned in this category.
Nevertheless I found this rod to be one of the best, if not the best, out of the series. At least for my casting.
Hope that helped.
Cheers
Roland

The lines I have used are Rio Scandi VT in the 8wt although the 9 should also work, AFS 8/9 or scandi around 520gr. Skagit Airflo compact 570. Also the Rio short head Spey in a 7/8 is good
