Default line weight for vintage glass rod

Hey guys,

I have an old phillipson master g-mf60 c glass rod.

THe side says 1 and 7/8 oz. line HDH-HDG #6

Default Re: line weight for vintage glass rod

It is a 6 wt rod. HDH is a DT 6 wt and HDG is a WF 6 wt line.

The middle letter dictates the line weight. For instance, a D means 6 wt. The first and last letter determine whether the rod is recommended for use with a Double Taper or Weight Forward fly line. If the first and last letter are the same, a Double Taper fly line is in order. If the letters are different, a Weight Forward fly line is best. An HDH then would be a Double Taper 6 weight, while a Weight Forward 6 weight is labeled as HDG.
