Re: Will this line work with this rod?
Well, all things being equal, a longer rod should load more easily than a shorter rod... it's a longer lever so there should be more energy in the system with a given line weight. That being said, it will depend more on the specific build characteristics of the Xa than the length itself. I'm not super familiar with any of the Allen rods, but I'm sure there's somebody out there with a more informed opinion of whether the Xa likes to be uplined. My suspicion is that the line you have will be just fine,
