In my opinion the Airflo multi-tip lines are great. I really like the
ones I have. However I also like Cortland products but never had one of their multi-tip lines. You could coat those loops with Aqua Seal, but if you don't like them I wouldn't keep the line. If you don't like it now you will most likely always hate it. Spend your money for a line that makes you happy. I would trade it for a straight floater and some 10' poly leaders in float, fast sink, s-fast sink, and extra s-fast sink. I think the 10' sinking poly leaders work great. You may have to cut your line tip back 2' or so although the guys using the new Airflo Delta lines are fishing the polys right off the tip. There is some more on the poly leaders on Dana's board under the new S A line thread and the Airflo line thread.
