RE:Over Lining

One note - the rod does cast well with the deep sea lines from Rio as well as the Cortland QD, etc. These lines are over-loading the rod because they exceed the standard grain rating for 9wt. The head length is shorter and you use less power in the stroke but in effect they are over-lining the rod. My earlier point was that IMHO it's better to get to know the dynamics of the rod before resorting to over-lining a rod that doesn't need it.
