After the loop broke I took the line to a fly shop and they put a amnesia loop onto the line. It broke too. Went back and it broke again. Lost over a foot of line. Never had it happen in over 2 year of "cheap" cortland lines.

Before you go trashing a product, you should be aware of these things. It wasn't the line's fault.

That said, I'd question seriously the value of a 100 dollar line.

And as far as Sean, notice how when someone says " I dont mean to be the worlds biggest flaming asshole scumbag but...", they tend to be the....
