I am pretty sure that Bob Meiser had a hand in the design of that rod. In case you are not aware, he is the spey rod Yoda. I have a 15' 8/9 Meiser I am going to have buried with me.
I have an Airflo Delta Tactical Spey line on it that I can toss out of the rod. I added 30' of running line to it. Not what does that tell you about the rod?
I think Mike Kinney also had a hand in that rod.
Just double checked, yes they did;
