They cast well, and go down at good rates with mending in moving water a plus, hope that is what you want in performance!

I do a bit of warmater panfishing in a local deep, clear lake. Many times, a sink tip just won't get my fly to where it needs to be. I know the sinking lines are heavy, but why would a 5-wt. line stress a 5-wt. rod; especially a stiff one (practically a 6-wt., really) like the one I have?

Anyway, it's a relief to hear that the line might not have a noticeable belly... I thought I received a manufacturing mistake!

Thanks,
Bob
