I bought a Scott ARC 1509/4 recently that was custom built. I don't know alot about the builder but can tell from the work that aesthetically, he did a fine job. I am waiting on delivery of a System 2 10/11 reel for use with this rod, and am contemplating a choice of line systems. Are there "out of the box" lines that work well with the ARC 15' 9 weight, or am I going to need to build a custom line in order to get the best performance? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks All

There are all kinds of lines that will work well with that rod. The first place I would look would be here:http://www.rioproducts.com/pages/speyrecs.asp

If this is your first spey rod I would suggest an Airflo Delta Long 9/10 or a Rio MidSpey 9/10.

For a long belly I use an xlt 9/10 - works well for tips cut back to 26 feet. I would agree with wrke that the 8/9 is a better line for floating lines. I use a short belly Delta 9/10 or 10/11 again depending on if I want tips or not. Prefer the heavier line with tips. I am not a huge fan of mid belly lines. I see no benefit of mid belly lines if I have both a long belly and short belly line, but if you want only one line this may be the way to go and would agree with MJC's choices.
