Sounds like a deal... I'll take it if you don't.

Hnl - I would venture to guess that you hated the line because you cast it like a regular fly line. With a shooting head one can not allow the release of running line into the cast until the very last backcast before your final forward stroke. If you do the thin running line will not be able to turnover the head and things will come apart at the seams loop wise.

If it's 333 grains it's light for the Atlantis at 30ft but might make a good chop n' splice line for something I am doing.
