The SA GPX lines are already a 1/2 line heavy. I wouldn't put a GPX 6wt on a 5wt rod, personally. If you want the rod to load better at shorter distances, then I'd go with the GPX 5wt line, or a Rio Grand, which is 1/2 line heavy too.
Congrats on the new rod!

Default Thanks Darrin

The GPX6 Was a typo...meant 5,

Only criticism I have is the rod is fairly heavy AND tip heavy, otherwise it eats line like a 20#redfish.
