They make a great spey reel too especially with the palming rim

There is more Bull***t in fly fishing than in a Texas cattle yard Lefty Kreh

I would say this model Silex would not have the capacity for a spey type line and backing. I have this model plus each of the other models of fresh water Silex apart from the Jewell.Spool depth 3/4" width 1 1/8"

But It makes a great center pin reel for a float rod setup with all the new braided lines .

In my opinion the reel would not be free running enough for any float set up unless a good deal of shot would be used under a largish float. The reel is bushing and quite heavy, free spins for 6 or 7 seconds (just tried it). Hardy's catalogue lists it as a casting reel for spinning which is not possible with this reel. Earlier incarnations with jewelled bearings etc were more suited. Indeed the first model of the 1890's is more useful as a casting and float reel due to its easy spin drum and casting regulators.
I used mine for trolling from a boat for chinooks for which it does a fine job.

Ill pass that along to half the steelheaders in B.C. that use bushing centerpin reels like the silex and Avon royals like I did for thirty years.
