I recently bought a Loop Classic 79, which I think is a gorgeous reel, which came with backing.  It seems to balance perfectly on the Scott T3h 14' 9 wt. 4 pc. rod.  When I bought the rod about 5 years ago, I enjoyed casting it but switch over to switch rods with skagit heads for the last 4 years.  The particular river in Alaska I plan to use it on ranges from 60' to 120'.  I was hoping if anyone might be able to recommend a fly line for the reel.  Glad to provide more details if needed.  Thanks!

For an integrated full floating spey line the Gaelforce 54-10/11 which @ 650grns would be a great match.  

The Ballistic Vector 9/10 @ 650grns would be another great choice.

I should add regarding the line suggestions in my post above I've got demos that you can try for a week on your water with no obligation but the return postage.

Poppy, to my knowledge, is the ONLY ONE that will send you lines to 'test drive.' Same rod - different casters - different taste on "what works.p

Well, final felt well enough (stomach and sore throat) to try both lines and most definitely the Gaelforce 54-10/11cast like a dream for me.  I will repackage the 2 sample lines and winder and put it in Monday's mail back to you.  I should I go about placing the order?  Thanks again Poppy, great way to do business!!

To place an order you can call the shop @ 208-486-6098 (10:00am to 5:00pm Pacific time) and talk to me or Dale or you can use my secure shopping cart at your convenience. http://yhst-9494565811469.stores.yahoo.net/gaeq54li.html

Or you can put a note in the package stating what you want and your phone number/preferred time frame and we will call you to complete the deal.
