We determine the generic degrees of cyclotomic Hecke algebras attached to exceptional finite complex reflection groups. The results are used to introduce the notion of spetsial reflection group, which in a certain sense is a generalization of the finite Weyl group. In particular, to spetsial $W$ there is attached a set of unipotent degrees which in the case of a Weyl group is just the set of degrees of unipotent characters of finite reductive groups with Weyl group $W$, and in general enjoys many of their combinatorial properties.
