    decent line - 3/17/2014
    By: from Cherry Hill, NJ

    I bought this line on clearance. I got the 11wt for my 10wt fast action rod. I am able to cast 80-90' on every cast and have reached 105' from time to time. The head is (I believe) around 40' which is good. I have read that this line does not sink- not true- on Stillwater it sinks just fine. My only gripe is there is slight above average line coil memory. But for the price I paid for it- I am very happy.

    Perfect sink rate - 3/7/2014
    By: from Puerto Rico

    This is a great line with a perfect sink rate for snook fishing I do in Puerto Rico. What I like is that the sink rate is ideal for comfortably recasting. With a moderate strip rate, I can recast with one or two false casts.

    Alternate pike line - 2/3/2014

    I bought this 12 wt. Intermeniate line for my 10 wt. pike rod, which I like to overload, but none of the line mfers. make a bass/bike line heavier tha 10 wt. I use it for pike, when the are holding in deeper cabbage beds. For pike, you must bring the fly right to the boat, so the heavier line makes getting off the next cast easier. It's a really slick line, which also helps,

    Fly line can be complicated, but this line helps to reduce the confusion. If I'm fishing dries, I use a floating line, but anything else I need to do with a fly rod can be accomplished with the help of this line. It doesn't sink deep, but if I need depth I use shot or a weighted fly. I've used this line before, it casts well and just feels good in the hand when I'm stripping line or playing a fish. Also, I know that if it doesn't perform as expected, Orvis will make it right.

    Addicted - 8/28/2013

    I'm addicted to the Orvis Tent Sale, my family is threatening an "intervention". Seriously, I have purchased this type line in a 4 weight which has worked quite well panfishing on a small lake in Southern New Jersey. I'm looking to use the 10 weight surf fishing this Fall in cooler waters on the Jersey Shore. All Orvis Fly Lines have worked well for me.

    Tent Sale Wins Again - 1/18/2013

    Tent Sale price plus an extra 20% off made the purchase of this line a "no-brainer". Gave it 3 stars due to having not field tested it to date.

    Disappointed - 2/27/2012
    By: from Knoxville, TN

    Purchased this line last year for a 7wt Orvis Hydros Rod and Orvis Mirage Reel streamer outfit to fish from a drift boat. I have fished with it 10 to 15 times. The line loads and cast well, but it just does not sink to any degree. The line just lays in the surface forever and then barely sinks to a 12 inch depth after minute or so. The performance is not what I expected from an intermediate sinking line.

    Great casting line - 1/7/2012
    By: from Connecticut shore

    I bought this line in 10-wt. for my Orvis 10-wt. TL midflex striper rod, and it's a great match. With the right line, you don't always need a fast action rod to get line out, and this line gets the job done, especially in wind (which is always there, right?)

    Good line - but no support for older reel spools - 10/25/2011
    By: from Glendora, CA

    The new line worked great, caught lots of fish in late season. But, I had to put it on another brand of reel as I cannot get new Battenkill III spools.
