Hi everyone
Newbie here.
I have weighed a few lines and my Quiet Double (Last version) in 000 weighed 65 grains 1st 30 feet excluding the level tip.
Looking at the Rio Light line 000 and 00?
They came out 41 and 50 grains respectively,so spot on!
The Rio LT was the same for a 000wt.
I also have three silk lines from Terenzio
The 1wt is 59 grains
0wt-53 grains and the 00wt is 47 grains.

That should work fine. I used a little digital scale I found at Harbor Freight. Were you surprised that some of the lines were not really the weight stated on the package?
A lot of the lines today are at least 1/2 line weight heavy, some a full line weight heavy. There are even some that are actually about 2 line weights heavy.

every one of them measured on or over the top end of the chart. several were 5 to 10 grains over the top end. surprisingly, my two cheap maxcatch lines were the closest to specs.

A few people have said that about Maxcatch lines.
Its a bit of a mine field out there on the whole!
