Default True Weight Lines

I need some suggestions for a true weight 5 line. I currently have a SA GPX, but it is my understanding that it is actually a half weight heavier than listed. For example, the 6 is really 6.5. I have a new 5wt that doesn't seem to like anything heavier and I need to know what lines out there are true weight lines. Do the Wulff TT run true to weight? Thanks!

Default Re: True Weight Lines

SA's Trout, Expert Distance, and XPS lines are all true to weight. The Trout has a taper profile fairly similar to the GPX, the Expert Distance has a super long belly and rear taper that excels at roll casting and mending, and the XPS is about the best for delicate presentations out there, IMO.
