I had the Powell LGA 908 and found it was good with an 8 line and even better with a 9. I currently upgraded the rod to the AXS Salwater rod and that is more a genuine 8wt. ( Not crazy about the action of the AXS but I have to fish it more to get used to it ). I would reccomend S/A Striper Line in a 10wt for that rod or the Airflow in a 9. I actually think the Airflow has the edge because it does not tangle as much and seems a bit heavier.
