Modern Spey Action in a Compact Length
With trends in modern spey lines getting increasingly compact, it was time the rods were designed with these new lines in mind. By using our years of spey rod development experience along with the expertise of spey casting champion Mariusz Wrobewski, we produced our most advanced spey rods we have ever produced.
Action and Length for Modern Compact Spey Lines
Spey lines have evolved since they hit the mainstream, yet the rods have remained largely the same. So we started from scratch to find the ideal flex and length to most effectively fish today’s most popular types of compact two-hand lines.
Out Lightest, Most Advanced Two Hand Series to Date
As part of the greater family of new spey rods (Full Spey, Compact Spey, Trout Spey), these new rods are dialed for how today’s anglers fish their two hand rods. The Compact Spey comes in a standard 12′ length in 6wt, 7wt and 8wt perfect for modern compact spey lines.

Action vs Power Comparison
Fast action rods feature softer tips than medium action rods and provide a ‘stiffer’ feel. Fast action rods excel in the hands of anglers with more aggressive casting strokes and greater stroke control. Medium action rods are ideal for anglers with more fluid casting strokes and have a larger ‘sweet spot’ for a wider range of casting strokes. Consistently throwing a tailing loop? Your rod’s action may not be a good fit to you and your casting stroke.
A rod’s power is its resistance to flexing under load. Powerful rods are ‘beefier’ through the bottom half, generate higher line speeds, and are more adept at keeping big fish pinned. Delicate rods are more presentation-oriented, protect light tippet, and are a better choice for picky fish.
