Re: over weighting line?
yep, depends on the rod.
i have a few 4 weights that all like 4 weight line, but all of my 3 weight take a 4 weight line as well.
my 2 weight likes a wf3 or dt2, depending on conditions.
my 5 weights can go 5 or 6, 5 working the best.
but when it really gets weird is 7 weight and up.
my scierra 10' 7 weight is horrible with a standard wf7, but loves a wf8 or even 9.
my sage fli 8 weight casts like a dream on a wf9 line.
so in my opinion, don't mess around to much with your mid weight lines, but take a look at adjusting your light and heavier weight lines.
