Default Re: Using Spey Rod for Single hand Line of heavy weights

thanks, I actually tried this while cleaning my lines this evening, and I was able to do as you said, one backcast with 20-30 feet of shooting line off the rod, and then launch, it wasnt to bad. I put my 8wt wf line on it just to clean it and was able to cast like my 10ft 8wt well, it was clunky being so big, but if I got into a spot with really high grass it might come in handy. its just fun testing.
