    Default 16’er for a 9/10

    Suggestions welcomed for recommendations.
    To mainly be used with spey lines with heads around 60’
    Useablility with shooting heads an advantage , but not critical.

    Cost not really an issue , but line weight is.
    Needs to be a proper 9/10.

    I'm wincing even think of wielding such a beast B!
    One of the best skills that an angler can ever develop is knowing the difference between passing the time and wasting it!

    The Powerlite is my personal choice. Lots of good options here these days. Of course best to try out before buying if possible.
    Good luck and have some fun with this!

    Use these a lot.
    For Spey floater (65 carron), tips and dressed - Le Cie 15 9 is great.
    For sinkers and heads LPXE 16.
    They’ll both do both jobs too.

    By a true 9/10 do you mean the old classic U.K. rating, or do you mean the current heavier US interpretation of the rating?
    If you are going to cast US made & rated lines on it then the B&W Norway Spey-caster is a great rod & not "bling-ed up" unnecessarily so you have to get the wire wool out to get rid of the heliograph-like flash on sunny days.

    With the older UK rated lines I always thought this is more of a true 10 or even a 10/11 rating, depending on how you like to feel the rod load during the cast.

    I still have a couple of 80 foot heads if you want a good work-out (& a 100 ft head, 1,500 grain, Rio Grand Spey if you've got a big 12 weight rod & you have been eating your' spinach recently.....).😈

    Ditto what Tyke said about the Norway if you want to save a few bucks.

    Got a 16 Norway 9/10.
    Will do the 60ft floating Spey heads easy - but under gunning this rod a bit.
    The 15-9 Le Cie (or whatever guidelines equivalent is now) is great for this.
