    I owned one that I used for deep water Yucatan tarpon. I used a 500 grain integrated shooting head.

    For your application, I would choose the line size based off of your fly selection. If you are throwing traditional sparsely tied splayed feather flies, the 13 weight line should be fine. If you are throwing some of the newer more wind resistant flies, uplining to a 14 weight isn't a bad idea.

    Other reasons to go up one line size are for windy conditions and loading the rod better for close in work.
