Go with the recommended Beulah Tonic Switch head. Get some Rio Mow Tips to complement the head.

Rio, Airflo, Orvis and probably a few others I'm missing all make heads with integrated running line.

I have Rio Switch line on a 6110 that I use for Lake Erie Tribs and its much more at home with an indicator than it is swinging flies. In lieu of this, I'm going to look at Rio's Switch Chucker line.

If you're going the Beulah route and want one of their lines, you may need to wait. I've heard that their new lines are heads only right now and there is little information available on their website. The previous versions of their line offerings did include the integrated running line and head but availability at this point may be minimal. Give them a call and ask questions if you're in doubt and if nothing else, ask them which of the rods they would recommend along with the grain window so that you can choose line accordingly.

Don't forget that you'll need a reel capable of holding the bigger and possibly longer line. You may already have one?

Did you buy the Beulah? If so have you used it and how do you like it?
