HI,
Has anyone tried the Sa spey tri tip with the Scott LS2 1509 ?
What size line would you suggest ? Thanks

Have tried 9/10 Mid Spey

Hi Jean-Jacques

I have not tried the Tri tips line, however I have tried the 9/10 Rio Mid Spey. I am a great fan of these lines and the 9/10 seems great on the 15' LS2

Hi Jean-Jaques,

I have cast the LS2 1509 quit a bit with many lines but not the SA tri-tip. The lines I like for the rod are the 8/9 Midspey, 8/9 grandspey 9/10/11 windcutter all by Rio and the SA 8/9 XLT and SA 8/9 spey mid. All work well for me on the rod but the stand-outs are the Rio midspey and the XLT. I hope this info helps.

Barney and Greg
Thanks you both, The Rio seems to be the prefered lines by most speycaster.

Hi Peter,

The SA tri tip has a 60-65' head while the spey-mid has a 75' head. But I am sure that if the 8/9 mid works well then the 8/9 tri tip would work just fine.

I believe that the SA tri-tip has the same taper as the original Mastery spey, unless they have updated it. That line has a 15-20' front taper (I've measured 2 of the lines, Mastery 8/9 and 10/11) followed by a long section of level line then to running line. Basically not much of a taper at all. Predictable yet uninspiring turnover.
