Sounds like a great rod,
I don't have a CFO II, but I do have a CFO 123 from around the same time as the rod, currently loaded with DT3. I think the III is the best size CFO for a 5 weight line and this rod's grip and uplocking reel seat. I've also got a Hardy Featherweight (too small) and LRH Lightweight (too big).
