Buy -Build Spey rod

Hi all
I have already solicited info from Todd & Juro....but I will put this out to the general membership too!

I 'm looking to buy or build a spey rod. I will use this for Salmon River Salmon & steelhead as well saltwater fishing for bass & blues.

I'm a pretty good single handed caster....untested (untrained) w/ a Spey.
I am usually pretty technical and strive for good form.

So what do you think is a good all round rod option for me. Both in a built rod or a good blank to custom build upon.

I'm thinking 7/8 13' .....but what do I know.
Thanks in advance for helping me spend my birthday present!
Ohhh Budget! $400 plus or preferably minus.
