I bought a xlt used (cast a few times) from a local shop owner because he didn't like it. He didn't tell me he cut it off at ~97'. I assume, because he doesn't get the whole spey thing, that it was to fit on his reel not so he could shoot backing. For me it kinda sucks because I can pick up about 100' of line and I don't want to be holding backing. So my question to you line gurus is can I easily add 30' or so of running line? What running line would I use and where would I buy it? what splicing method? How much is running line? Maybe I will just take it back if it is too much trouble.
