Of course the quality of the reel will suffice, the drag, etc. Ross won't let you down in service either, as Mike says. And in the river you won't need to soak it afterward like the saltydogs of the northeast (of which I am now one!).
My only thought would be reel capacity with a long belly Spey line or a Spey DT. I use a standard arbor 4" diam reel for my 7136-4 rod, but a 5" diameter reel for my 8, 9 or 10wt Spey lines (and rods).
