I am planning on switching from a Windcutter to a Skagit line for my 12' 6" spey rod. The Rio guide recommends a 525 grain line. My preferred vendor only carries 500 or 550 grain. Is it better to go up or down from the recommended grain?

I agree with Rick as I too prefer a lighter line. If your rod has a faster action, you may be better off to go with the heavier line but mostly it will be whatever suits you casting style.
