Default Orvis line for Echo Edge 9' 5wt

I am a beginner and have a 9' Echo Edge 5wt with a Lamson Konic reel coming. I am in Arizona and will be primarily trout fishing in streams, rivers, and lakes. I have a $25 off coupon for Orvis and was thinking of using it for line and backing. I was thinking about the Access WF trout line or possibly the Hydros trout or superfine. I have read that some of the Orvis line is .5 over weight and that the Hydros superfine is .5 under. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

I think the superfine with your rod would not match up to great as the action of your Edge is fast and the superfine in my mind is meant for a slower action rod. I think the Access WF Trout Line (which is on sale at Orvis) with a mid-length head would compliment your rod and casting experience perfectly.
