I think your Alpha would work, if you like that reel, just use a little less backing on it. But please contact Steve Godshall, I keep plugging him cuz his lines are amazing.

How much backing would you suggest with my Alpha 7/8 and also, what line would best serve my purpose aside from the custom line? Would Rio Switch 7/8 work? I would like to swing streamers and occasionally indicator fish. Do I need anything additional besides the leader if I got the switch line?

You can find Rio's line recommendations here: ... ecommendations%202013.pdf

I would go with the A selection as I find their suggestions a bit heavy, IMO.

The Rio switch chucker in a #6 would be my choice.
SGS line from Steve Godshall-----541-840-2594. He's very good dealing with casters new to the game and will set you up with an assortment of tips for your line and rod.

Use gel spun backing for that Alpha Reel.
