Default Nymph Specific Rods (line selection)

Just curious to know the best all around line for a nymph specific 6w rod. Id maybe like to get a very slow sink tip line or hover line but all recommendations and experiences are welcome

I would probably stay away from anything sinking. You'll create a lot of belly or drag in your line. I have Rio Indicator on one rod, and some Rio Nymph on my other one. Right now you can find some Rio nymph 6wt line on ebay for like 36 dollars. Brand new.

A floater is likely more versatile depending on where you're fishing and what you're targeting.

You can add Polyleaders from Airflo or Versitips from Rio and largely achieve the same thing.

Or you can make your own sinking tips and remove them when you need the floater. By the way, if you're going for the nymph/indicator line as Sd mentioned, I'd think it would be a good match for adding a short bit of T-tip or using Ard's method.
