WTB: 12'6'', 6 wt

Hello. I'm new to spey pages and seeking help and advice. I recently took a Simon Gawesworth spey class-great fun! I'd like to try a light weight spey rod on my favorite trout rivers (Henrys Fork, Colorado) and think a 12'6", 5-6 wt. rod would be ideal. I'm looking for a used rod, a new Z-axis is out of my price range. Perhaps a used Sage or Meiser, or a new Dec Hogan or TFO would do the trick. Advice and offers would be most welcomed. Thanks,

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB

I think a 6 wt and even most 5 wt spey rods will overpower most trout and are more rod than you need to throw even large streamers. I'd consider the Echo 4 wt. or the light rods (#3-4) by Gary Anderson or Bob Meiser.
