I just got the mastery spey tri tip 9 wt. and have had it out twice on the 9140 and love it. Just my two cents.

Dana: are you saying that the 9140-4 could or in some cases should be matched with a heavier line? I was under the impression that a 9140 was to employ a 9 wt. line. What, if any, would be the conditions for using a heavier spey line one line weight higher than the rod.

Tom, It is not unusual to use a wt or 2 heavier on any rod, I just bought a used 14" 9 Wt G loomis and the line that he had been using for two years and sold me was a 11wt. running line and thre sink tips, a 13 ft 10 wt. type IV, a 15 ft 11wt. type VI, and a 15 ft. 12 wt type IV.

We used to use the heavier line on the 9140-4--a new caster could feel the rod load a little better with the heavier line. But I think that the best "out-of-the-box" set up currently available is the 8/9 Mastery Spey, as you were using on the weekend I believe. The heavier line overloads that rod, IMO.
