Just bought a 6 weight meridian on ebay to use as a light saltwater rod and to throw streamers with here in KY. Anyone have any thoughts on a line that would pair well with a meridian?

I have an 8wt meridian and it loves rio flats pro. I like the stealth tip. I have caught some fish that I don’t think I would have without the clear tip on slightly miss judged shots where I overshot the fish. It’s pricey but I have had great results and it performs as they claim. Rarely a tangle and it lays out straight.

it's fine in the salt - I use it on my 6 wt method in the winter in the salt here in Texas and works great as a streamer set up in the fresh.

I don't use my 6 in the summer in the salt - use a heavier rod to manage the fish more quickly.

So full disclosure - not sure how it would handle super hot summer weather and water.
Could possibly get limp but the in touch lines are pretty stable.

while I do like the flats pro - its a mess in the colder weather - coils like mad - so I never use it in the fall/winter. I also don't love that line on the meridian. I'd recommend the rio bone fish for hot weather but doubt it would perform well as a streamer line.

I figured bonefish lines probably wouldn’t turn bigger flies over as good. I’m pumped to put it all together, really appreciate y’alls help

Got to play around in the yard with my new rio Intouch gold and was super impressed. Can’t sit to get out and fish with it. Thanks brokeoff
