I do understand that switch/spey lines have more grains per ft than the regular 1 single hand line. However, what about the thickness of the head? In this case, is the 6wt Chucker will have the same head thickness as an 8wt single hand line or is it about the same as the 6wt single hand line but just more dense?
Runningfish, it depends on the length of your head. A shorter head will be "fatter" than a longer one of the same weight. Tight lines, Jeff.
