    I've tried doing a search but think I'm just missing it.

    Here's the premise. He made a video. In the video he used a FF9010 (I think it was). It's the 9-10wt glass fenwick with the 6" extension handle. He setup a spey line or possibly switch on it. Just trying to find out who it was and what type of line they were using. I have mine that I've tempted to use a spey/switch on. Just curious what grain they were using. I know, I know, go grab and line and find out. But if it's done, why not use info that's there. LOL.

    Anyone remember????

    Jerry, just FYI. Banzai had some big ass fiberglass spey and/or switch rods at the gathering last summer. Manly beasts! Could be another resource.

    I don't want a glass spey. Just i know i have rod in video. .wanted to use it more, just not as a single hand. Figured I'd pickup a Scandi for it. Just wondered what grain he was using.

    By the way. Want to try a true beast? I have an old greenhart spey from the 1800s at home. Just the rod weighs more then most complete spey outfits.

    I didn't try Banzai's spey rod but I did try maybe a 11' fiberglass. That would ruin me in 30 minutes. Just not man enough for that.
    He has quite a collection including some of Bruce Ferguson's rods.
