Being 9'6 I'd try a 7 or 8 and go from there.

A 3311-B would indicate that it's a "bass weight" and would call for a 7/8 line.
If it's not a B try a 6wt line first

I don't think it's a B. I know my 1973 Dawia is a 7 but a 7 line doesn't cast good with the lines today so I went to a 5 and it's like the old 7's again. so you may be right since it is a slow rod a 6 maybe good. thanks.
