Just wondered if there's any feed back...

Following on from the "Biggest Salmon you've Seen" thread, here's a picture of another Norwegian fish for you to guess the weight. Again, I'll let this run for a day and will reveal the weight tomorrow. Until then will look forward to seeing what people think. :)

I am just looking for some recommendations. I am thinking of getting a new trout rod for the coming season; usual story, salmon slowdown and doing a little more trout fishing.

Tied on Pro Sportfisher micro tubes with a short clear hook holder behind, only the small cone as weight.
This handful uses what Pro Sportfisher calls a Flexi Weight instead of any sort of prepared body. They have an extension / hook holder cut to about 3/8 to 1/2 inch.
The unweighted version has no body at all but I have few uses for zero weight flies so most have that silver tube. The flies...
I have a couple of Rio Scandi Short Heads - an 8 and a 9.
When I bought the 9 body I got it with the Versitip kit, that is the four tips to go with the head,
They seem to work OK on the short 8 head as well.
But as I like the lines I was considering getting a third head for a 6/7 weight...
