11' 5 Weight Switch Line
 
I just picked up a new Loomis RoaringRiver GLX Switch rod in 5wt. They recommend a 350gr. Skagit line. I am looking for something from SA. What recommendations do you folks have in terms of SA lines?

What you have in mind? Using a longer Sacandi style or short skagit style head?

Reason being is SA, Rio, AirFlo and so on all have skagit style head or Scandi heads so its what you want to use.

It would be a longer Scandi type head. The majority of the time it will be used for drifting nymph rigs and once in a while, swinging smaller streamers.

Skagit type head of you want to toss sinking Poly Leaders. Scandi if you're going to be tossing regular mono (or Furled) leaders. Just my .02 cents.
