Just picked up a used reel with a line on it that is stated to be a Bill Drury 9/10 spey line. Now I'm trying to figure out which one. Measured the orange head at 25ft from the loop then it transition to a green/grey running line. Does anyone have any idea what it could be or could point me somewhere that has the Bill Drury specs. Google has been unfriendly with this. Let me know if you can help. Thanks.

I have Drury Impact spey lines, but the "heads"/bellies are 62ft and 72ft long. The floating versions a blue with fire orange running line and the sinking versions are a muted blue/green with fire orange running line. The 62ft lines are 120ft long and 73ft lines are 135ft long.

Maybe you are referring to the Guideline Bullet lines ??

That sounds strange because usually heads which sink are darker and floating shooting lines are brighter. Please check which color is thickest?

The Guideline Bullet Evolve is a short belly line with an orange "loading zone" (hold point) and is a blue/gray with teal running line.

Not a great pic but the lighting is horrible here. It's entirely possible it's not even a Bill Drury? Hope this helps.

Sorry it took so long!,Bill Drury Aura Multi tip Spey line,38ft head, comes with 15ft float,Inty,sink 1/2 and T10 tungsten tips.I think there's an older version too without the T10 tip.
I believe his earlier efforts were made by Guideline,his more recent efforts go under the Speyworks brand(still think they're Guideline manufactured).
Also might be a few very similar lines with differing brand names but all Drury.

So this could be that line without the tips? I will need to try it. I have various tips to give it a go.
