Dear Ryan,

I have to agree with you on the 11' sage xp 6wt...Mr. Jerry Siem was kind enough to send me a demo rod to play with for a couple weeks. I haven't used it yet as a 2 hander, but you can throw close to a 100' with the smallest triangle taper spey line with single handed spey casts...I'm sure it would also be an exceptional small double hander...

Have fun

Steve

i have had the opportunity to cast quite a few spey rods and two handers, and own too many...

the T&T's are on the faster side, but not what i would call fast like an XP. (the 14' 9 weight is delightful).

about the "fastest" two handers i have thrown are the Scott Alpha series (SAS) two handers. originally designed for the european market throwing short shooting heads, these rods are very fast; so much so that traditional long line spey casting is quite difficult. they are quite a bit less expensive than the scott ARC series (flagship) spey rods.
