RE:Ross Canyon #6 for a Spey reel?
While I have not yet seen the Canyon, I have been using the Ross Saltwater V for 4 years as my Spey reel of choice. I love it and it gobbles up my custom Speydriver line and 300+ yds of 30lb dacron. I was somewhat saddened by Ross discontinuing the reel but it seems that they may have given it a facelift and called it the Canyon. It is funny as they never really seemed to market the Saltwater Series as it wasn't even in their brochures. I will say though, that if the Canyon is of the same quality as the Saltwater V it will be an awesome spey reel. BTW - I just checked the Livin' Large II piece - nice...
