    Default Selecting line for a St Croix Legend Ultra 9WT

    I have some done some searching here and google with no clear consensus. I need to throw big musky flies with a St Croix Legend Ultra 9WT. A small fly is 4" and 8"is large enough. They are not real heavy for their size, but they will definitely catch some big air. If you have ever lined up this rod from size 8-10 please chime in. It's OK if it takes more than one attempt, but I'd sure like to avoid buying 5 quality lines. I'd like to throw big flies over 50FT when I need to.

    I am looking for a grain weight recommendations. Brand choices can come later.

    Those numbers are much lighter than most big fly guys use. Probably fine for a modest sized fly. 350-400 seems to be the range I may need. Just hoping somebody with experience on my new rod will have advice.
