Okay Dennis, I appreciate the technical specifications. So the Spey is a 10/11 weight, and I'll get an 11 weight. I don't think the FlexTec Rod would be described as "fast action".
So in the larger rods, my current inventory is as follows:
The actual Spey (2-handed) a 10/11 weight and 15' long.
(needing a Shooting Head at, or greater than 510 grains)
this is the one, that I will probably supply with the Diver Dan Recommended line, but not right away, since the Float Tube season is virtually over.
a 10 weight rod (TFO), for which I (ordered yesterday) a shooting head
(Scientific Anglers....no grain data given)
a 9 weight (having a Weight Forward Full Sinking line)
That is my inventory currently
