I'll keep my eyes open. I got my last 9/10/11 from a friend who bought a Spey-sized reel at LL Bean Outlet with intent to use it for schoolie bluefin tuna. I ran into him in the parking lot. He said he got a great deal but the line was all wrong and he was going to toss it. I said I'd give him $20 for it and he stripped it off the reel right there for me. I've been real happy with it on my 10150-4 I had been using a Kinney configuration on that rod for winter steelhead and that was perfect with the one drawback of stripping a lot of running line between casts. The Rio line requires a lot less of that and overall extends the amount of line being handled by the rod. The head casts just as far but is harder to manage once all that running line gets between you and the head. The biggest advantage of the head is the huge range of sinking tips it will cast for winter runs.
