Yeah 5wt is the line I have on mine, but try a DT line if you have one (if not, 5wf is fine too).

I have no line yet... Does the DT work well with the amount of flex in the rod? Does a WF "load" the rod too much?

Yeah a lot of glass guys like DT on glass. I actually tried DT on mine because of the review of the rod on the Fiberglass Manifesto.

I've been using a WF5 all along on the 7" 5/6 wt. It works well.

I would say too, Geo, that an old reel won't just look good on the rod, it will balance it better as well. There's a reason why glass guys use the old click pawl reels. Apart from looking very cool and vintage, they really do balance the glass out.

for what its worth, a WF and DT line are pretty much the same for the first 30ft or so. (head length) You wont notice the difference until you have more line out that that.

WF= better @ shooting line
DT= Better long distance roll cast, and can be flipped because it is the same on both ends.
