You are exactly right. I believe I answered his post presumptuously without thinking it through.
My rationale was that he was trying to get it back to the original setup. I have some antique setups and I enjoy fishing with this type of approach. I even have a few reels matched up with the old 'Wonder-rods'. They are pretty dang stiff. However; I do not think I could ever regress back to the old floating line materials in action.
