I'm looking for a new reel but line capacity is almost always given in normal line sizes as opposed to spey line. Is there a general rule you use? I want a reel for my 6/7 Mid Spey.

6/7 midspey...

I have a Tioga Magnum Large Arbor 8 that fits and balances very nicely on my CND Expert 6/7 with a midspey 6/7 line on it, aprox 175 yds 20# backing. Perfect setup, reliable drag, maintenace free and a deal at about $130.00

the 6/7 mid spey

takes about the same amount of space as a 35m DT9F.

size

4.0 inches reel will handle that with backing.
We could talk about brands for days.

Size

Moose this fits nicely on an Abel #3. The capacity is listed as WF10f + 250 yd 30# backing, so anything similar whould work fine.

Thanks for the input. I'm thinking a Bauer MZ5 with right type of backing will hold it.
Thanks again.
