It depends on how you want the rod to load.
WF6 (160 grains*) will load off the tip.
WF7 (185 grains*) will load more towards the midsection.
WF8 (210 grains*) will load all the way down to the butt.

Sink Tips specs.
I would go at least WF7 for the rod. More grain weight mass will help you throw those bigger bass flies.
