Re: Spey weight for largemouth
I definitely get you need to think of how far you wanna cast when you choose a Spey rod weight, but it is true that Spey rods are stiffer than single handers, and a 10/11 weight singe can be used to catch big game saltwater fish.
I do want to be able to cast a certain distance, but there's no point if the fish can't even bend the rod when he's hooked. I don't want it to feel like I'm dragging it in with a steel bar.
To this point I think I might agree with the orvis people.
