RE:Wulff Triangle Taper saltwater floating line

Sounds cool! I have cast that line in an intermediate and found that it was easy to use in tide currents because of the long taper. You don't have to strip it much to get a massive roll cast, pick it up, and cast again. This seems like a major advantage for tunoids on top, something we saw a lot of last year. Also supports very long aerialized line lengths due to the taper. It throws long lines really well to your point.

I also have heard of guys who ended up cutting a few feet of the front to help turn big bangers over in the wind. Most lines have a level tip of ~1 foot that is not part of the taper.

Keep us informed thru the season, I've been thinking about a floater as well.
