So with traditional flex spey rods. are they mainly used for scandi spey casting? Looking at a trad flex spey ros thinking of getting to use skating flies in the summer time. using either a 40+ fly line or a speyicator line. If I were to get a 7wt rod in trad flex would I need a 7 wt line in 40+ or go to a 8wt??

Traditional flex rods were the early rods used mainly with long belly lines and DT lines.

There are very interesting discussions on this site for rod actions.

My favorite rods for all steelhead fishing are considered "traditional flex".  They are smooth but powerful.  Fast action rods can drive wedges into a wind but aren't necessarily the best skagit head/winter steelhead/heavy sink tip tools unless you load them with ton of grains because they load and unload very fast.

The newer traditional flex rods are a pleasure to fish.  The old ones just weight a ton.  Unless it's the old SAGE 7136-4 Brownie.  That one still makes the cut often.
