Orvis zebra line...

Fly fishing folks,

I just got a little tioga #4 fly reel on ebay. It comes with an extra spool and both have 4 wt. line. One of the lines is called orvis zebra line. I did a search on this product and found nothing. Only a single description saying it was a speacialty line. I suspect it is no longer produced.

Does anyone know this line and what it's characteristics might be?

thanks for any clarity.

One from the grave yard of discarded marketing. The stripes were to help detect micro drag and aid mending. The line is a standard weight forward floater and should work great for you.
