I have a chance to pick up a Mastery tarpon line at a great price. What I need to know is , is it to stiff for the colder waters of N.E.? Will it be like a coil spring in the shooting basket?

You are right on about the SA Mastery Tarpon line being too stiff for N.E. waters. Those lines, as well as the bone fish lines are made for the warmer waters of the tropics.

Great Tarpon line, poor choice for cool water.
