|At one time it was 20# test core up to 8 weights and then 30# after that but that was some years ago.|
I know that many use 40# for the lightest part of their leader system for Peacock Bass.
We used high end really light 9' #10 line 4 piece fly rods when I went a few years ago.
If you are getting less expensive rods I would go 9 weights because they should be heavier and it is usually a lot of casting.
I would not use a physically heavy reel either.
It is the only place I have actually had to use fighting gloves in my 30 plus years of salt water and fresh water fly fishing.
