Thanks.Have not fished with it until recently on the Tweed. Have always gone a line up on Grays and Hardys. What I thought was a 10/11 line was in fact 38grms. Would think I'll need 44grms+
I have an xf2 13' . I bought a 8/9 line and I couldn't cast it properl, a couple of experienced guys gave it a go and they both agreed a line size up would be better so now I use a 9/10 and I can cast it a lot easier .
Not sure if this helps but i use the Gaelforce Spey equivalent on the T Series... if it were an option i would look at the Gaelforce Scandi/Shooting Head option. They really are good lines.
I would agree... on the T series the heavier 63ft head opens the rod up... the lighter 54 ft rod is good too... but it may be more the application of technique than anything. So perhaps not overlining but increasing the weight by perhaps getting a longer head if available could be a solution... but could be an expensive experiment... suppose it depends how much you want to invest in finding out how your rod reel line combo suits you(r) casting efficiency
