I am seriously looking forward to the new Cortland 555. I am big fan of Rio and SA but I think Cortland may actually have an excellent product here.
I wouldn't have a huge number of uses for it as most of my dry lien fishing is done for steelhead with a long bellied WF such as SA's Steelhead Taper and Rio's Salmon/Steelhead (which will not be avaliable in the 555) but the floating capabalities of the new 555 and the coating will make this an excellent line. The 555 is less dense by alot...I know thats a crappy way to describe it but I dont remember the exact measurements off hand
I got the chance to parking lot cast one a few weeks ago and I must say I was impressed.
Shipping will begin after the 1st of year.
