"I use this line for casting big streamers to cruising lake trout and salmon in my local lakes. It turns over big flies with ease and has the proper sink rate to get my flies in the strike zone. Coupled with a helios switch rod this is a pleasure for all day casting. Could not be more happy with this product."

"I fish for Shad on the Delaware River in PA. This line is excellent when the fish are higher in the water column. I was using a 7 weight, however just purchased a 9 weight and also purchased this line for my new 9 weight. I highly recommend this line due to the ease of casting."

Not a sinking tip,
October 19, 2012
By: JohnJon
from Grand Lake Stream, ME
"The tip portion of this line does not sink. It is intermediate at best. It is supposed to be denser than the back portion yet a leader breaks the surface of the water faster and sinks quicker. This is a real suprise for an Orvis product. Line was returned w/o any troubles. Reccomend a full sinking "depth charge" for faster water."

"A decent line. However to much memory. Must stretch the line before every fishing trip or it coils."
