    Perfect depth - 2/10/2014
    By: from Texas

    Purchased this line a few days before I went streamer fishing for trout. Caught five fish on the first five casts. Excellent for double hauling once you time it for the sink tip. The beauty of this product is the perfect depth placement in the water column. It puts you where the fish are.

    Finish is a little rough but the line gets down. Much better than the intermediate sinking line (orange color).

    Well Designed for both Rivers and Stillwaters - 8/21/2013

    This line is effective in both rivers and stillwaters to get streamers, wets and nymphs deeper in the water column to the fish. The combination is fairly easy to pick up and cast. I recommend a fast action rod for better casting distance.

    Outstanding design - 5/14/2013
    By: from Oregon

    This must be the most intelligently designed line yet for use with nymphs. It casts like a FT, rolls like a DT and mends like any premium floating line. Top notch for fast streams two to four feet deep. Very few snags as you don't have to weight the leader. Excellent performance in very cold spring water. This is a must have in your line arsenal!

    cheap - 4/19/2013
    By: from Holland Patent Ny

    Thecontainer was a soft cardboard that fell apart while I was winding the line to my reel. The line dropped to the floor in a tangled heap. I threw it away and was realluy upset that a company like orvis would change what was good packaging.I have bought several lines and reels from you , Never again

    Streamer Stripper 7 Weight - 12/28/2012

    This line provides good control and enough sensitivity to feel the slightest tug, I used for the first time and caught a 22" 4 lb rainbow out of the Arkansas in Colorado........Thanks Orvis!

    Great line, even in adverse conditions - 3/28/2012
    By: from Alaska

    When I set out looking for a new line I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to find one that would fit my needs. I needed a line with a short sinking head that would shoot well and perform in cold temperatures. I was a little nervous when I decided on this one as it wasn't specifically listed as being made for cold water and my older Orvis line wasn't very happy with the cold water. I shouldn't have been, when they said it works well in a variety of temperatures I guess they mean it. This line performs excellently, even when pulling it out of salt water with ice floating down it, and letting the stripped line sit at my feet in a snow bank. Slick enough that not only did it shoot well, but it shed the snow and ice without trouble and it had no problem with memory or stiffness in the cold. Excellent line, would definitely recommend.
