    My buddy has the DNA 1307 paired with a Rio Scandi 450 grain that I give a few cast last week while on the SR and it felt pretty well balanced. You really should try a few heads out to see what works for you. If your near me in Central MA I'd be glad to meet up and let you try a few heads I have or if your near the Farmington in CT I can point you to people that teach 2 hand casting and have all the lines and heads from Airflo, Ballistic and Rio for you to test cast.....way more than I have access too. Also, the heads I have are probably a little long for that 11 footer. I do have a Rio SSVT #6 that I believe is rated 6/7 that might be a fit.

    Here is what the Bearsden has spec for that rod, most likely provided by T&T:

    Thomas & Thomas DNA Switch 1107-4
    $910.00
    Length: 11'
    Sections: 4
    Line Size: 7
    Rod Weight: 5.20
    General Grain Window: 340-440
    Scandi Style: 375gn / 26-34' Head
    Skagit Style: 425gn / 19-26' Head + tips

    * SSVT I have falls in at 370 grain window...should be a good match, provided we are talking about swinging flies with it? If your tossing an egg & bobber there are better choices.

    I was told to look at the switch Chucker as well. Any thoughts?

    I don't have any experience with the Switch Chucker but I know a few people that love em. If your up on the Salmon River stop by Milinda's shop and I'm pretty sure she told me she has that line for demo. I'd like to give one a try myself !
