Interesting case Dan. So 270 grains would the standard weight for a 8wt shooting head. So you actually want nearly a four times overlining for your rod!

I luckily came across today an old 8wt Orvis shooting head (ten wt. on label). Good old blue. They don't sell these anymore so this was a good find. We'll see how it performs on the rod.
