Vision XO #5 og/ eller #6


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I found some vision xo for really good price and I am in doubt if I should get two #5 and #6.

 

i fish a lot by the coast so would be using the #6. But sometimes I fish by the riger and I would like to have some good gear to go to lapland one day. So I thought the #5 could be something for that.

 

what do you guys say. Are the rods very similar? Does it make sense to have both?

 

 

thank you in advance.

looking forward to hearing from you :)

Thats a good question... I have the number five rod and I have tried the the number six.

In this case I think one rod is enough?

The number six rod will work well in Lapland so my recommendation will be to buy the XO 9´#6, especially since you fish mostly by the coast.

The XO is a very nice rod, you will most likely be very satisfied with this rod :)

Hi Jonas,

thank you. It makes good sense. Just one more question since it looks like you have some experience with the rod.

 

what weight of line/ shooting head would you pair the #6 with?

 

thank you in advance :)

I’m not sure about the weight. But I know for a fact that vision XO wf5f, Orvis hydros superfine wf5f and NAM A-type WF5F matches my 9’ #5 rod perfect. You can check the line weights on their websites :)

For your 9’ #6 rod…

I think the Loop 105 WF6I will be great for coastal fishing.

floatingline…. I would go for the NAM A-type or M-type in WF6F
