Can any members give a good line rec for this rod, I am currently using wf 8and 9 lines. it works ok with the 9wt but 8wt is too light. I am fishing small rivers and was considering a spey line which I suspect the rod was designed for.

One of my clients had this rod on the Dee with him last week. It was matched with a Guideline SC 8/9 shooting head which IMHO was too light for the rod.

Its a good little rod but I would agree with Dex_Evo's observations.

I had asked Hakan Norling the same question about what was the best line for this rod away back before Christmas, he gave me a couple of options.

Use a PT Triple D DH #8/9 approx 11.5 or 12m....or a #9/10 cut short to 10.5-11.5m.

Or if you want to keep it simple a PT ready 2 go #8/9 short cut line.

Use 35lbs Compline as a running line.
