I fish a SA Textured GPX taper on it when nymphing and streamer fishing (4 & 5 weights) and I feel it is not as heavy as the grand, but certainly more so than the Gold. I should try the Gold on mine, I've not actually done that. Now for dry fly fishing, the SA Textured Trout Stalker is an amazing line on that stick. Wow.
