Let's qualify that steelhead point -

for steelhead, many use their very best lines and never use weighted flies or weights of any kind on the line. In fact it's illegal in some pacific northwest waters. I prefer to skate dries or swing subsurface wets on long leaders with floating lines. There is a big difference between great lakes techniques and pacific northwest techniques, especially summer-runs.

The Wulff T/Taper makes a great Spey line, many here will attest to that. I've also cast the intermediate Wulff for single handed rods in coastal saltwater conditions, and find it less desirable for sight fishing because it takes a long line to fully load the rod. I prefer a line that loads more quickly and gets down to business with a short amount of line in the air when shore fishing in the ocean.

How are you planning on using this line?
