Default Galvan T8 for 9 wt line?

I was hoping someone could tell me if 9wt line will fit on a Galvan T8. I don't mind shelling out the extra money for a T10 but would like to use the reel with my 8wts too.

It will fit but you will lose some backing. I don't think its a major issue since I've never gone through all my backing. Even false Albacore who love to run with a fly have never come close.
A T10 will probably throw your 8WT off balance. There is alot more metal in a T10.
