Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shoots Effortlessly I have all three types of the Bank Shot line. Fantastic where you have limited or no back cast options. Best fly line I have used for roll casting with a single handed rod although this the fast sink version hits the water a little heavy . . but that inevitable with a T7. You'll be needing a modern fast action rod, after that you be delighted with long effortless casts. Not the line for you if you like false casting. This is lift and shot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I purchased this line in an 8wt, and others, to put on a new Clearwater Cassette Reel. This line is amazing. The first 20 minutes of so the tip still floated but after some use and fish it performed exactly, better even, than any other sink tip I have used. I found the colors helpful to knowing where I was both casting and retrieving. I could pick up and cast 30+ effortlessly, and the wind was comming from different directions at times 15-20mph. With one false cast I could easily throw 50-60 feet into the wind. I've used it with sz 12 beadheads and 1/0 clousers with ease. It is not real delicate, but not bad, the trout didn't mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great line This line has a very intuitive feel to it. As advertised, it loads up better and with less line out than the other sink tip lines I've have experience with... I was accurately shooting line and hitting targets right out of the box and in the first few minutes. This is going on my 7/8wt boat rod for smallmouth.
