Default Re: Can a 10 wt rod handle all of this?

We have some good mako/thresher shark action down here in socal which average around 80-100 lbs sometimes getting up to 200. How would a 10 wt perform on a fish that large? I've fought them on light conventional gear but never seen anyone fly fish them, although I do know some people down south who fly fish them and they have used 10 wts before, my only fear is hooking a 350+ lb blue shark like I have before, which was 400 lbs and we had tuna/billfish conventional gear, and it was still rough. Shark fishing on the fly would be really sweet. And also what line(s) should I definetly have to be versatile in the salt?
