We are pleased to be able to provide these two Line Recommendation Charts for a number of two handed rods on the market.
You will notice two line ratings per line. The “A” rating is for more experienced casters, or for casters that like to cast off the tip of the rod.
The “B” rating is for less experienced casters, and for casters that like to feel a deeper load in the rod.
It is also a good choice for coping with tough winds, or using larger flies.
With any of the Skagit lines a front tip needs to be added. When a tip is added, the overall weight of the line will increase by the weight of the tip.
That weight increase has been allowed for in these recommendations.
Do not subtract the weight of the tip you are putting on from these grain weights, unless you are only going to overhead cast it.
These recommendations are only guidelines as to the correct line weight to be used.
RIO Products or Airflow is not responsible for any rod breakages or if you find the line does not load as you would wish.
How a rod loads is a personal feeling and these recommendations are only a guideline.
