Lightest 8wt Spey Reel?

Was wondering what is the LIGHTEST spey reel out there? Could it be the Lamson Velocity at 8.75 oz?
Considering the lightest reel out there for the Sage 8136-4 Spey.

Hey Peter,

I was at Kaufmann's yesterday and them guys are always sticking new toys in my hands when I can't even rub two pennys together. But they showed me a Loop 8Twelve. Very lightweight LA reel that would hold line for a 8/9Spey I believe. Right around 160 something.
Spey casters do it with longer rods

I don't know if its "the lightest" but I'd go for the Hardy JLH Salmon at 7 3/8 oz. In fact, I own two - one to fish, one to ripen.
