Checked Simon's chart but no Scotts listed. I am guessing this would roughly equate up to the Sage 9150-4 so would handle the Accelerator 9/10. If not, any input would be appreciated.

Also, withoput opening up the shooring head vs. long bellied debate again, I am curious as to what other LB lines people have used on the Scott 1509 and their thoughts on same. Toying with picking up this rod and would be using it mainly for tip work and winter fish (Skagit, Sauk, Sky etc.)

Thanks guys!

The line that Way Yin (spey bubba) has been working on with SA is terrific with this rod. I've made spliced versions of the design and have fished the SA prototypes with my 1509. I just heard from him this week that he feels he and SA have arrived at the final version of the 9 wt. I don't know how soon it will make it to market, but it will be a perfect match. The 1509 is Way's favorite 9 wt. Personally, I've only fished the floating versions because of the Atlantic salmon and summer steelhead fishing I do, so I can't personally comment on sink tips. It fishes well with Airflow sinking leaders, though.

Hi Sinktip, the info i have from Simon at the Rio site shows the Scott 1509 as rated for the Accelerator 7/8 for "A" rating caster and 8/9 for the "B" rated caster. "Each rod has been rated for two different line designations. The "A" rating is for casters who like to feel a faster action rod and those that are good spey casters. The "B" rating is for beginner and moderate casters and those that like to feel the rod with more flex". I hope tthis helps,tight lines,brian:devil:

I have the Acceleraor 8/9 that I use on my Scott 14' 9 wt and it handles it well. I would think that either the 8/9 or 9/10 would be your best choice for that line. I test cast a spliced version of Way's line at the Spay clave on the Sandy last year and was very impressed. Not sure how well this line will work with tips as it has a long front taper.

An option might be the 8/9 or 9/10 multi-tip Midspey. The 9/10 casts like a rocket on my 14' rod (a bit heavy).

I really like the Airflo long Delta lines but they currently do not come with optional tips so you would need to make your own.

That should complicate and muddy the waters sufficiently!!

Thanks for the input. Glad I asked as my original "guess" sounds like it would have overloaded rod.
