8 weight is typically 30g. If you convert 30g to grains you get 462. I would therefore go for something like 475grains as your starting point.

#8 Salmon or #8 trout ?

Before I posted my own answer I did check the Snowbee Website and as far as could make out they recommend Skagit set ups within the 400 grain window for all of their 8 weight switch rods. With this in mind it does actually seem as if their 8 weight rods are in fact 8 salmon an not 8 trout.

Hi PP. Thanks for that. Defo a small double hander there then and not a true switch rod :(
My #8 Loop Evotec can't be cast single handed....even with two Weetabix :ROFLMAO:
