Default Re: Hardy DD Ultralite 4000 v Nautilus FWX 5/6 for Winston B2x 9' 6wt

Sweetandsalt:
Is the Nautilus 5/6 FWX too light for the Winston B2x 9' 6wt(every so slightly under 3 ounces)? If so, should I get a 7/8 or add t14 line weight to it?
Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

This is a tough call. FWX is very light for its capacity. My 5/6 was too light for the NRX #4 I intended it for so it wound up on my lighter Sage ONE #5. Compare the weight of your Winston to the ONE, if heavier, I would have no issue going up a size in FWX. I long ago gave up relying on the well intentiond efforts of reel makers to tell me what size line I should put on their reels.
