SA Single-Hand Line Weights

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.

1 54 60 66
2 74 80 86
3 94 100 106
4 114 120 126
5 134 140 146
6 152 160 168
7 177 185 193
8 202 210 218
9 230 240 250
10 270 280 290
11 318 330 342
12 368 380 392
13 435 450 465
14 485 500 515
15 535 550 565
