Has anyone had any experience with these lines? I am thinking of getting the 500gr version for my Xi2 12wt. I use the SA Wet Tip line on my 10wt for small tuna and really like the new braided core running lines. My concern with this line is the relatively short head at 25'. I want a good casting line that will get good turnover on long casts and have had bad experiences with shorter heads in the past. The other option I am considering is the Tropic Express in the 450gr version but I am not sure it will be enough to get a good load on the 12wt. Any advice with these line/rod combinations or any other lines I should consider would be appreciated.

I have been using the Teeny Dan Marini Pro Series 475 Grain on a 12 wt Powell Prototype no-name rod. Works great from a boat even with very large striper flies.
