Hi Guys: Have any of you fished the Lammy 14 foot 10 weight spey, the burdandy finished 6-piecer. Lightweight? Stiff? Line recommendations? I'm thinking of getting one as a travel rod. Thanks in advance, Keith

Terrific rod, I bought mine as a backup, but it's become my favorite 9/10 wt rod. I'm fishing Scando style for the most part & like a 440 to 520 grain head on the rod. I think a 9 wt short head is about right, but a 10 wt would be fine as well. For a Skagit setup probably about 800 grains. The 3 rods are rumored to be made by Scierra. They are light & very quick.

Lammy

Thanks, Jay. Anybody else out there who has cast this stick? A friend has the 12'9" 8/9 and is very happy with it. That rod works great with 7-weight shorter head lines, seems to be overloaded with the 8/9. I was wondering if the longer rod also might have an inflated designation and actually be better with 8/9 lines. Hmm?
Jay, what brand heads do you use on the rod? Thanks, Keith

I also have the 12'9" 8/9 which is a great rod also. I have a system of measuring rods that seems to work for me. Using that system, the 8/9 is a solid 8 wt, not an 8/9. I do tend to like my Scand heads a bit toward the heavy side, so I fish 400-450 grains on the rod. The Loop ADH heads 8/9 at 400-425 grains go very well on it as does an 8/9 Vision head cut down to 430 gr ~32.5 ft. Rio Scando 8/9 with tips at 35 ft (439 gr) is terrific.

The 14' 10/11 measures as a 9 wt, so calling it a 9/10 would have been more accurate in my opinion. I'm using Loop ADH 9/10 heads on it (460-480 gr) & Guidline PT 8/9 at 42' (498 gr). Rio Scando 8/9 with tips at 39 ft (525 gr) is super, too bad they quit making those lines.
