    I did get a 10' 6/7wt spey leader from that stinkdog leaders guy - along with several others. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to really put the spey leader through the paces so I can't give you a full report on that, yet. The other furled leaders work great - they really help with turnover so I see no reason that the spey leader will not work great too.

    Only two drawbacks that I can see (and they could be significant).
    1) The larger diameter of the leader will slow the sink rate (or speed the ascent) of your fly in moving water. I plan to have some made with fluorocarbon to help offset this.
    2) These leaders lay out straight - this is good most times, but it can be a problem when fishing dries if you want some extra slack in the leader to get a longer drag free drift. I guess it could be remedied by adding more tippet in those circumstances.

    Overall - A furled leader will really help your casting, especially in the wind, or if you are having trouble getting your leader/fly to turn over nicely.
