Default Re: Line weight/rod weight question

A 5 wt rod generally takes a 5 wt line---in the first 30 ft the 2 lines will weigh the same---and this puts a certain stress on the rod while casting----the more efficient your casting is, the more load you put into the rod.
the less efficient you are the less load is put into the rod and the 6 wt will feel better to you--we cant evaluate your casting on the forum very easily
