I use the spey spool for the 8550C as my 10/11 weight reel. I have five spools and five Rio lines on them, including the old DT10/11 that was discontinued a few years ago. Phenomenal reel that's also very versatile. Alas, its price is nearly that of a Bogdan and sometimes the wait to get one can be nearly as long. That is improving, though.
