    It's all down to personal choice, what suits one person doesn't always suit another, cheap rods can suit one person better than a really expensive rod and vice versa.

    Well I got the 12ft6 7/8wt v Spey rod, lovely finish on it didn't like the blue whippings but that's a matter of choice. I have to say it's a brilliant rod weighs 7 ozs and got a lovely feel.

    Maxcatch Spey rod

    To be honest I don't think you can go wrong for the price. Can't remember who it is but they've got the sky touch 14ft I think and it isn't heavy art all. At that price you could always move it on

    Maxcatch Spey rod
