I have the ECHO 10/12 & a smaller 6wt something. they are great reels. incredible drags. they can take some abuse n run perfectly. I have caught several fresh coho & steelhead on the 6wt including a 14.9 lb winter head. the ECHO ions are a great choice.
I fish a redington dually spey rod. I think it is softer than your red fly.
I know your question was about lines but I thought I would tell you what a great reel you have.
