I'm not sure, but the 14' 9 wt I'm building is pretty light. I'm just guessing but it can't weigh much more than an ounce or two. Once you start tossing big handles and reel seats on it you have a different story, but even then I doubt it will be to much. Also it's not like casting a single hand rod where you have a bunch of back casts. With a spey rod, in the words of my Canadian friend "a couple quick Ninja moves, and your fly is back out at the piling." By the way, that one made me laugh when he said it. I told him I was going to steal it, and Voila! I just did.
