New fly line
 
Hello forummembers,

Looking for a new fly line. I doubt about buying a'n airflo ridge tropical tarpon taper line. The line is a 10 wt. My rod is the xi3 aftma 8. I think the heavier line will load the rod faster dan with a 8 wt line.

Could a 10 wt line, casting on a 8 wt rod, damage the rod? I'm asking this because I have the feeling that my rod is not loading very nicely with some 8 wt lines.

Regards

Simple answer: No.

What kind of fish do you intend to target.
