Default Re: How do you know you have the right line for your rod?

I agree with Big Jim.

Basically, you have to just try them. The CCS system doesn't work for me because it doesn't reflect how I actually cast when using the rod.

The line weights that work for me with my rods are either at or lower than what the rod is labeled at by the manufacturer even when the CCS system labels that same rod 3 weights higher. Like yours, mine are typically rated by CCS as 3 weights heavier.

If the 9 wt line is close, then I'd try a 10 wt when you get the chance.

PS out of curiosity, what rod and model is it?
