How do you clear the fog around line weight dis­crep­an­cies?

Stu­art Hughes – Trusted tackle shop where you get de­cent ad­vice and they sell prod­ucts they be­lieve in (not just the big profit mar­gin ones). Adam Morgan – Try it out. Find its op­ti­mum load point for your rod and cast. I use a 7wt floater on 2 of my rods and it casts dif­fer­ent on each one. I can aeri­alise more line on one than the other to achieve max­i­mum dis­tance. Robert L Wat­son – The present sit­u­a­tion is a bit of a mess. There needs to be a set stan­dard they all com­mit to and make life for us an­glers a wee bit more straight­for­ward. Jake Water­man – Stick with one brand than there’s noth­ing to com­pare with. Chris Fer­gu­son – One man­u­fac­turer sells 6/7wt lines, which adds to the con­fu­sion. Most lines are fairly de­scribed and it is just a mat­ter of ad­just­ing the length out­side the rod tip that suits the rod. De­nis Gould­ing – I try to use 7wts as much as pos­si­ble but with the stiffer 7wt rods, 8wt lines load an aw­ful lot bet­ter. If I could, I would al­ways use a line weight heav­ier than the rod is marked for. Now, does any­one know a line that fishes 1-5 inches be­low the on a static re­trieve and stays there...?
