Default Re: acceptable distance for 9' 5 wt.

Thanks to all of you. I am getting some practice in now that the weather has improved, and will continue to do so. I actually have put some 6 wt. line on my 5 wt. rod and am trying that now. It does seem to cast somewhat better. I suppose a rod could actually be heavier or lighter than its designated weight?
