So I looked into Todd's advice. Called Bob Meiser (a truely nice guy)....got more advice/information about spey rods/lines than my brain could handle.
So I ordered the SGS Scandit Shooting Head System sized for my CND Solstice.
Pretty neat system w/ interchangable parts to go from scandi to skagit line systems depending on the conditions.
Now I just need to learn how to spey cast!

FWIW: In today's times it is refreshing to talk with a guy like Bob Meiser. Low key...no sell...just tells you what you need to know. If you are looking to buy or build a rod I would call his shop and talk w/ him about what you are wanting to do. His expertise and williness to help you out is something one doesn't find too often! His products are superb! (my next build will be with one of his kits...)
