RIO GrandSpey

Just completed three days of casting and fishing with the new RIO GrandSpey and I'm working on my review for the lines page on the Spey Pages.

Wow. Exceptional turnover at all distances, easy to cast, and when you need to you can really reach out there with a long cast and still have confidence that the line will turn over nicely.

While I wasn't a huge fan of the Accelerator (the power hinge turned many of my beautuful Spey casts into tuck casts! :chuckle: ) I'm lovin' the GrandSpey!

More to follow on the Spey Pages...

I spent two days playing with the new Grandspey in the 9/10 and 10/11.
The rods choose for the work was Bruce and Walker Kola 15’3” with the two tips one tip for 9/10 and 10/11 ,Flylodgic 1409/4 for 9 and Loop Green 1409/4.
I will start by saying that this is not my father spey line meaning this is new.
I have yet to cast the xlt’s but that will be another thread.
No matter where you started or the rod ended it would cast.
It is just that simple the works and these days this is the best testimonly you can have.
I like the front taper. You could turn over a hummingbird for hell in gale force wind with this line.
I do not think many people will be casting the whole head.
What fun it is going tries though.
I can even flip the egg with it.
