I think I've got the rod figured out I'm going to get but, it's a heavy weight, to much for coho I think. So with out breaking the bank, is there another way I can fish for coho with a spey but using my regular 9wt typeIV sink tip and reel? 350yds of backing on the reel, just trying to maximize what I will end up with. Would a St. Croix imperial 7/8 throw the 9wt line or am I way out to lunch on this idea.

a nine wt. should load alright,but , with the sink tip ,it's always the belly thing,every line is different,between brands ,and i've got a s-a class6, 8 wt.that has no taper,other than the tip,even though their website shows a regular tapered linein this model???,shop around,a salmon steelhead taper is a long belly line,my favorite line is three lines spliced,or leadcore looped to mono for overhead,lots of ways to go,just get it wet,that's the important thing:hehe:
