Wanted: 9/10 wt Spey line

I'm looking for a good condition used or demo spey line for a beginner to learn on. For my 9140-4

Preferences are Rio WC 9/10/11, Rio Mid-Spey 8/9 or 9/10,
or Wulff TT 9/10. Either with or without interchangeable tips is fine.

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.

You still looking for speyline?

I'm thinking of selling my Rio WC 9/10/11 multitip line with heads. It's only been used maybe 3 times since I bought tinew (I just sold off my othe set on ebay that you asked about awhile ago). I'm loking at switching to a DT spey line, Ii rarely use sinktips for flyfishing anymore, and don't really need the multitips. I paid $135 for it. I'll sell it $100 firm. I bought it in October. Let me knnwo if you're interested.
