I have that rod and fish that line on a couple of different rods. I am usually not inclined to over line rods, but the rplx is a canidate for overlineing. The rplx might not be the best rod for fishing a floater.As everyone has said, this line is the opposite of a shooting head, but it is the best handleing line I have used. Perfect for big mends, roll casts, and controling a swinging(or dead drifted)fly. I think that I would stick with what you have, and if you can arealize the whole head(55'?)and it still feels unloaded, line up.
