      It depends on the type of fishing you plan to do, and you will be FAR better off buying your rod from a local fly shop and adding the line they, or the rod manufacturer, recommend as a combination.
      For steelhead, a lot of folks now prefer a Compact Skagit-type rig; a short shooting head ahead of a slick, small running line. But manufacturers' nomenclature varies and once again you're better off getting advice direct from an expert, not us online typists who know nothing about your circumstances.
