Jim, subject to correction here, but I thought all single hander lines had very tight weight tolerances. There appears to be some fiddling with that at the moment as I've seen references to '5.5' weight lines. That said, you make a valid point as its only the first 30 feet that get 'counted.'

As you note line design for 2handers can get very inventive just by going to a thicker/thinner head material. Same weight (in grains) could easily change in just 10 foot of line.

Minor edit. Took a bit of looking but DT single hander lines can change quickly. Gather as little as six feet can 'up one' the casting line weight.
