I recently purchased an Elkhorn, 7 foot, 1-weight rod, and would like to know if anyone has experience with this particular rod. Recent posts have discussed other 1-weights and their frequent need for a line heavier than the one listed on the rod. I would appreciate any advice on line brand and weight, as I don't have any available to try out before purchase.

It is my first Elkhorn and my first 1-weight, and appears to be a very well made rod at a good price.
