    That's my all-year spey backup rod (the medium flex, not the newer fast action version). The two lines that fit it are: for a floater, a S. A. WF8F Spey Shorthead; for sinktips, a Rio Windcutter 9/10/11 cut back to a 550 grain skagit belly with integral running line. I don't know from scandi lines.:confused:

    Mac,

    Thanks for the help, how do you like the rod? I got the older version not the new one.

    That is a very nice casting stick. I like shooting heads from around 425 Scandi and 450 to 500 Skagit. If you do a search on speypages for Anglers roost or ARE you can find more info on the rod. I'm talking the older rod. Fine rod.

    Skyler, I'm sending you a message with Steve Godshall's contact info. Give him a call, tell him what you need and he'll build you the best line for it. He's pretty familiar with the Angler's Roost rods.

    Skyler, I think this rod is not as powerful as some others of its size I've tried. But it's pleasant and quite capable within normal casting ranges. For the price, it's an astounding value in spey tackle.

    call Steve Godshell at Meiser rods. He knows that rod well and his lines are not expensive.
