I was curious about the head weights of the SA Sharkskin steelhead taper, and called SA for info. In response, SA sent me a chart of grain weights for their single hand lines as set forth below. Weights are for the first 30' of line, excluding the tip. The dimensions of the SA heads can be found on the SA website. One Gram = 15.432 Grains. The numbers did not come out in columns the first time I tried to post, so I will just have to tell you what the numbers mean in order -- line weight designation, eg. WF8, low grain-weight tolerance, target grain-weight, high grain-weight tolerance.
