Donald,

I was having the same problem matching type 3 heads to my 7 and 8 weights for the Delta. The 7 needed a little more than the 265, but the 315/330gr 8 wt head was too much. Ended up cutting the back 2 feet off the 8 wt head and adding a braided loop. The 7 loved the lighter head (approx. 280) and the braided loop goes through the guides better than the OEM loop. Did the same thing to a 9wt head for my 8wt and like it better as well.

Sometimes it is good to both question and buck the system.

Best of luck getting yours dialed.

Dan W.
