    Anyone try this on a Spey rod? Looking at the #4 that weighs 9.38 oz. for a 13'6" 8wt. The Full cage is appealing.

    Hardy marquis #2, go Korean made. tighter tolerances in machining, but don't let the guys on speypages know I said that or I'll get the tar and feathers

    Hard to go wrong with Ross CLA reels. With your rod I would go with #6 but you might go with the 7 depending on how you like to balance the rod. Lamson updated their line up not too long ago so if you shop around you might still find an Alox II lite speed or velocity at a great price. You have a few really good choices in that price range.

    The CLA is very appealing. I've only ever seen the #4 in person and it felt very solid. I prefer mono running lines for my spey reels. Any problems with the line slipping between the frame and spool with these?
