Still not found the perfect match for my 14ft G2, tried the following but still searching;
Mackenzie G2 56ft head - hated the colour but cast well enough (if only the tip was ivory).
Carron Jetstream 55ft 9/10 - bit too light
Carron Jetstream 55ft 10/11 - bit too heavy (nice on original 14ft DTX)
Original DTX 58ft 9/10 multi tip - best so far.

Any other suggestions?
Cheers Diarmid.

Have you tried the 9/10, 56ft Century Stealth?

Cracking short headed Spey line, there was one in Classifieds recently at a bargain price, not sure if it sold. I would have had it if I didn't have 2 already...

Dairmid, wait till the new Rio short headed Spey line is available in the UK, it looks like a cracker. Got two fish yesterday off the Tay on the new Century, what a rod.

I prefer a shooting head on that rod, Zpey Fusion 41 gram go's an absolute treat.

What about the barrio mid Spey I've not tried it but have the switch and a trout line and I have been really impressed by both of them might be worth a look
