hi ,
I am looking for shooting head weight for sage 10ft Tcr #7 .
I saw where martin suggested 2 more than aftma rating so 9.5 to 10 meters of DT #9 should be ok? on guidelines chart it would be 9.5 to 10 meters of #10.

which would be best .save me buying wrong line ?

Hi Niall,
I think your better off weighing the shooting head and trimming it in small slices. You should try to get access to a scale as chemists use them and work vs. the AFTMA table. Once you get close to the right weight string on the head and try it.
