    As a matter of fact I have that line on a new St Croix Legend Elite 9' 5wt. I had the line before I got the rod. At first I was concerned that since Rio advertises it to be used for moderate action rods, I wasn't sure how it would load my Elite.

    Well I finally used that set up this weekend on the spring creeks in NE Iowa. I had no problem roll casting, pitching nymph rigs or making longer (30') cast. The line loads the rod well and I see no need to change line. Oh yeah, I should mention that the line was spooled on a new Trout II reel from Allen Fly Fishing and really like that reel.

    So though I normally fish a 4wt rod, I have a perfect set up for when the wind kicks up or when I feel that the 5wt will be a better tool for the situation at hand.

    That is the line Simon Gawesworth uses in his book "Single-Handed Spey Casting"; SG uses it on a Sage Z-Axis 9'0" #5
