Default weight of kiraku rod and Olympic 420 reel

I recently dug out my grandad's rod and reel to learn the fine art of fly fishing. Its an Olympic 420 reel and the rod is a telescopic Kiraku telescopic rod (appears to be wooden) that measures 7'7" when extended. There are no markings on either that indicate the weight. Can anyone tell me the weight of this pair so I can get the right line for it? I put a photo of the combo in the gallery earlier but this doesn't appear to let me link to it.
