Most saltwater rods are underated by at least one line size. I would go with the Airflo 10wt for your rod. It has a five year no crack guarntee. While it won't take a nail because its surface is so slick the Albright knot does the job and is not a problem. at the casting clave this past winter, I lent my Airflow lines to people with 9wt rods and the could cast farther with the heaver weight line. Yes it might be your casting style but when an expert caster like Juro tried my old Sage RPl wit a 400 grain Airflo he cast out the whole line. So I believe that the line rating are not up to the modern rods
