has anyone ever used this reel as a spey reel. it says it will hold 350 yards of 30 lb backing. im wondering if it would hold a 8/9 xlt?

Scottd,

Since it has slightly larger capacity than the AS 11/12 it replaced, it should have plenty of room for an 8/9 XLT and backing. I base this on having my AS 11/12 loaded with an 8/9 GrandSpey and 200 yds of 30# dacron backing.

I have one loaded with 300+ yards of Micron 30 lb. backing and a WC7/8/9 for tips line. That set-up, using only the floating sections of line, fills the spool perfectly. I hope this helps.
