Default Re: WOOO...Tax time...considering new spey rod

SO....lots of research....lots of discussions including talking with a Loomis Pro....and picked up the Dredger, discussed above, yesterday. It is...going to be awesome! It is a beautiful rod...always have liked the look of it...and the feel when I fondled it at the fly shop. NOW, its mine! WOOOOooooo!

As noted, I also got line with it...and with that, got confused suddenly....and was reminded that I know so little about the world of spey and spey lines still.

The line, I had thought, was a 475gr skagit head. But the line spool....is not marked that way. It, the spool, is marked Rio Running Line....but the line itself is marked Rio 475gr.

Could I be over thinking this? Perhaps the guy I got the rod and line from 'just' put the skagit head on the running line spool?

What are your thoughts?

Thanks in advance
