Default Albright 15' 10/11 wt.

Have any of you ever tried the Albright GP 15' 10/11 wt. rod? How would that pair up with the Carron long belly line Which if I remember right has a 75' head?

Default I tried it

I cast it with the Airflo Delta spey line I have for my Meiser. It's the 9/10 wieght line and seemed a bit under weight for the rod. It still shot a lot of line but loaded best with casts like the double spey or circle spey. I had written down what the Carron Jetstream 10/11 long belly line weighed but seem to have misplaced the paper. Do any of you know what the head on that line weighs?

Hi Dan

I don't own one but have read this elsewhere:

10/11, 75 foot head, 861 grains
11/12, 75 foot head, 921 grains

Hopefully someone will weigh one for you!
