Default Re: Spey weight for largemouth

I want to be able to cast far with no back cast, but I want to be able to feel the fish when I hook one. I think he might be right in the fact that a 2lb largemouth on a 7wt Spey with a 450 grain line might be like pulling in a twig.

I mean the 7 is made for steelhead, and I'm catching smaller and lighter fish that generally don't fight as much.

Spey rods aren't cheap, and I don't want to drop a lot of money for a rod that won't give me much enjoyment when I hook a fish.
