"I fished this line for giant Tarpon in Costa Rica, and it broke on me three times. I finally switched to another line, even though the replacement line was heavier than I needed. To be fair, Orvis replaced the line after I returned.
I chatted online with an Orvis fishing expert, and he could not or would not rate the strength of the depth charge line, arguing that the leader will break before the line will. After I informed him of my experience, he expressed surprise, stating that he had only broken one Orvis line, and he was only aware of three other customers who had broken lines. He seemed reassured by this; I was not.
The line has performed well in all other respects, but when other companies rate the strength of their big game lines at 60 and 70 pounds, I think Orvis is making a serious mistake by ignoring this issue."

Review 2 for Hydros 3D Depth Charge
December 4, 2012
"I have both the 250 and 300g. They both work good but the 300g is a little heavy to use on my 8 wt. I use 300 for fast moving rivers, the 250 works great on lakes and ponds gets down but easier to cast from a float tube"

Review 3 for Hydros 3D Depth Charge
Depth Charge Does it Great,
August 19, 2012
from Portland, Maine
"I used the 300 grain on my trip to a lodge in Labrador. It did what it was designed to do get, the fly down to big Lake Trout. All I can say is the manager couldn't believe the big lakers I landed. One was the biggest Laker caught at the lodge with a fly rod since opening. I used another brand last year, Orvis Depth Charge is far superior. Get it it works awesome!"
