Earl - I just got the same rod and put the new rio technical tarpon 11wt. line on it. It has a longer head - 60 feet and casts very well. even into the wind I was turning over a 5 " peanut butter EP fly on my practice pond. For Mex. you might be casting shorter in mangroves but in the open lagoons it may be nice to have the longer head. I also did some practice casts of 30 to 40 feet, and was well pleased with how the line would load the rod. I did not feel the need to go up a line - I think Rio has the line weight on the 11 Tech. tarpon line just right for the XI3, 11 wt. Good luck. Let us know what you get and how it works.
