need lots of help

Are you sure you want a 10 weight for king salmon? I had a king break a 10 weight ticr. Now I use a 12 weight ticr. I also use a orvis battenkill 5.
If I were you I would get a 12 weight ticr, the other a series 1, and then whatever you have left for reel/line/backing.

My understanding was that flyline in the bigger sizes (10) is 30 pound strength. I use 3o pound leader and have had my 30 pound leader broken but never my flyline.
