RE:Wulff Triangle Taper saltwater floating line

Like the weight forward taper, the triangle holds a majority of its density in the front half of the line. This is why it shoots like a rocket. But unlike the WF, the very tip is a thin, nearly level line allowing for better presentation.

<blockquote><hr>This provides the most efficient transfer of casting energy as it unrolls because the heavier line is constantly turning over lighter line.

This design also gives you a more delicate presentation, because the weight is away from the fly. It is also the finest roll casting line for up to 60 foot casts. The combination of a long weighted section and a light running line make the Triangle Taper cast like a shooting head for distance.

John & Juro -- thanks, I'll keep an eye out for both issues.
