    Hey guys. So I am running 8 wt gpx line on my rod but am wondering if this steelhead taper will be more suited for my rod. Would I notice a difference? Have any of you guys had any comparative experiences with this steelhead line. Or should I just shut up, keep the gpx line on there and not waste my money?

    Daniel,

    After you've caught ten steelhead on the gpx you'll have a better idea of whether you need or want the SA sthd taper. I think you should think more about fishing for steelhead and obsess about gear less. If you want to catch a steelhead, that is.

    No reason you can't do both. Besides, the season for tackle whoring never closes.
