Ok, here is the opposite end of the 8-weight for kings question. I know 8-weights are probably the most popular rods for silvers (and reds and chums, too), but I do not like my current 8-weight. I do have a 7-weight that I like, and I got the chance to buy a matching 10-weight at a good price so I bought it, too. I am coming up during silver season, so I am wondering if I should even bother bringing the 10-weight or if it is just too much rod for silvers. I am definitely bringing the 7-weight, and need to know whether to bring the 8 or 10 as a backup. Or should I just bite the bullet and get a better 8-weight?
