    Hey Dan,
    If you're getting a Windcutter or another short head spey line, you generally want to select a reel that will hold 2-3 line sizes larger. I had an Okuma Integrity 8/9 that I won in a raffle just sitting around and decided it needed a line. It holds an entire WC 5/6 line and plenty of backing.
