If you have the Expert 6/7 then the DT Spey 8 wt. should be perfect as the 6/7/8 would probably be a bit heavy for it. From what I can remember when I tried one and from what has been written about it, the rod is more of a 6 than a 7 -- so your 8 wt. fits the "two over" rule of thumb quite nicely. You'll probably be able to cast the same distance with half the effort using the spey DT as pushing an overweight line is never fun.
