Default Re: what weight spey line

Mike 1handers and 2handers have a totally different rod weight/line weight set of designations. You can take that one step further in that the 'spey line' you'd use for over head casting won't be the same (one step lighter if memory serves) than you'd use for water loaded anchor casting.

End game is take a look at the AFTMA line weight chart (grains) for a single hander and ditto for a two hander. 'Both' rods rated as a '5wt' for jollies. The two hander will be far heavier than the other. Its a rod construction thing.
