Hi!
What is your experience of the switch rod 11 ft Oracle 8-9?
I mean does it cast better with the Barrio 27, 5 g or 30g?
Thank you so much for your answer

Hi Gerard

In my experience the Shakespeare Oracle 8/9 rod is nicer with the Barrio Switch 7/8 line, but beginners to double handed casting can find the extra weight of the Barrio Switch 8/9 line useful.

Best wishes
Mike

Gerard,

Just to echo what Mike has said I fish the 7/8 version of your rod and I use a 6/7 Switch line with it. That being said if you are new to casting D/H I would go for the 8/9 as the rod will load much more easily.
