Anyone ever used a Sage 8080PRO reel on a spey rod?

It's really a beast of a reel: spool diameter is 4 3/8" and it weighs 12.4 ounces with backing, running line and a 550 grain skagit head.

All thoughts and comments appreciated.

Don't see why it wouldn't be a good spey reel.
It's not that heavy.

I use a 4 1/2" JW Young B10 on my 15'6" rod.
It weighs 20 oz with spey line and backing.

My 4 1/4" Hardy Perfect weighs 21 oz with Spey line and backing
