Default Line for Redington CT 7'6" 3wt

I'm about to buy a 7'6" 3wt Classic Trout and am wondering what everyone recommends for a line, preferably around $50 (or less). I was considering the Cabela's Prestige Premier (on sale for $35 from $60), but it says it's a half size heavier and I don't think I want that on a slower action rod like the CT? Thoughts?

Thanks for your help!

I am also looking for a line for the 3wt 8'6" CT. However, knowing the slow/medium action of the CT, I will look for a true 3wt line and not looking for heavier line since it'll make it even slower.

I put a hook and hackle high floater 3wt on my 7'6" 3wt classic trout. It casts great! I believe they are on sale still for around $30 shipped. I was surprised how good a line it was.

here is the link

H&H Weight Forward Lines-Hook & Hackle

Is the line supple enough to sit for a longer time in a standard arbor reel?

I suppose only time will tell. It does feel plenty flexible. I have a Rio mainstream line on my 5wt and it feels quite a bit stiffer to me. Been having problems with the line twisting and tangling while fishing. Haven't noticed any issues with the hook and hackle line yet. But it is still new and are 3wt and 4wt. I like them so far from the practice in the yard and the trip to the stream last weekend.

I even like the color. An olive green. Not quite as eye popping but still pretty easy to see against the water.

I'll check out the H&H line. Thanks!

I was really impressed with the Cabelas Prestige Plus WFF line I put on mine. Great value, especially at half off!
