I'm looking into the SA Streamer Express in a clear tip. The tip section has an intermediate sink rate of 1.75 - 2.25 IPS and looks to be thirty feet. A large diameter handling line of twelve feet (sinks) and fifty feet of running line behind it. I cast a prototype a while back and liked it on a rod I do not own. I like the idea of the integrated handling line for mending right after the cast for certain situations. This sinks a little faster than the intermediate SA in surf (color) but that line sinks faster than any I've used in salt water which which is needed more often then a very slow sink rate. Some don't sink at all after the cast and need a tug to get them started sinking.
