Here is something from my notes for a 9' 6 weight B2Mx:
The new Rio Grand should be fine even though it is +1 over. A B2Mx can handle line mass as heavy as 225 grains. It will not hurt having extra line mass to help throw those big bugs.
Thanks a lot i think this info will definitely help me
But the last point:
RIO Smallmouth Bass has the longer head 64ft 200 grains
While RIO GRAND's head is only 39ft but a bit heavier 230 grains.
What to choose the longer head 200 grans or shorter head but more heavy?
Or maybe I should take both ...
