    Slippery and noisy line - 8/13/2015
    By: from Island Park, ID

    I fished this line in a WF 5 weight with a Winston 8'9" 5-piece WT rod for ten days on the Henry's Fork. The line is very slippery and does shoot incredibly well if you need the distance. While stripping and casting, the textured surface makes a zipping sound as it clears the guides and can cause some abrasion to the index finger of the rod hand. The most troublesome aspect of this line is that it seems to hold water and sprays it when casting. Needless to say, this made for difficult casting to wary trout on gin-clear, gently-flowing water. While on the water one night, I did think that I would have to get new line for the remaining days of my trip in order to get onto some more fish. If you fish in other than spring creek conditions and want/need extra distance, this line may work for you; otherwise, you should skip the textures 3D surface, save some money, and get a line better suited to your needs. It's probably better to practice your casting and even learn the single or double haul rather than rely on the line to get you the extra distance. You may not want to give too much credence to 5-star reviews from those who haven't even fished this line yet.

    Slick Line - 7/21/2015

    Just bought a four weight line to go with my 6'6" superfine whilst I was on vacation. I tried it out on the small brook near the holiday lodge and found it very slick and effortless to cast. I had adjust my casting style slightly as it took a lot less effort to achieve the same casting distance I would have acheived with the old line. It also cut through a stiff breeze with ease. The only minor down side I could find was that when the line was wet it was a bit difficult to keep hold of the loops when casting as it was so slippery! However it was such a minor down side compared to benefits I can't justify knocking down the score.

    Fantastic product. Take my comfortable casting distance and add 20+ foot its that good. The 3D texture makes for smooth casts and it floats superbly.

    Great lines - 12/30/2014
    By: from Wellesley MA

    These are high quality lines that cast well and seem to avoid some of the curliness of the cheaper lines. I found the texture a but odd at first - to the point that I thought that the line had been damaged! However I then realise they are supposed to be like that!
