So I bit the bullet and ordered myself a g-loomis crosscurrent 8# and am pairing it with a Shilton SL5, as far as line goes I have got the airflow tropical punch (for when Im in the seychelles) I have a cold water line for when we will be in Cape Town in a few weeks time, Im also looking get a spare spool for the shilton, then hopeing to christen the crosscurrent with a few garrick and hopefully a grunter or two, that's if the rod arrives before we fly out
