Default Re: Redington Predator

I thought I would revive this thread with a couple of comments and a question. I bought a Predator 6wt and have been searching for a line. I tried a Rio Clouser 6wt which has a 178 gr head. I also have a SA redfish in an 8wt which is a 225 gr line. The 225 gr line feels about perfect to me. I read somewhere that a Redington rep suggested a 6wt Rio Outbound Short which is about 236 gr., so I dont feel the 8wt line is too much.....plus I like it. Here's my question: I'm headed to Maine for a few days of small mouth fishing. I think I can get away with the SA Redfish line in the cold water. I'm not concerned with the floatability issue as Ive used the SA line in fresh water. What do you think about the cold water vs the Redfish line?
