New Sci. Anglers Lines

Has anyone had a chance to test the (new?) Sci Anglers sink tips? I think they're designated in grains like the Teeny lines and also for freshwater and saltwater.

RE:New Sci. Anglers Lines

Luis -

In the northeast, the QD lines (also measured in grains) were extremely popular until the delamination and cracking problems became obvious and consistent. The Rio deepsea offered an alternative, much more durable but it doesn't cast quite as easily for a line of this design. It seems to be more sensitive to having the right length of line out of the guides, although that is something quickly aquired and in no time it becomes second nature. All in all it has been a saving grace for the sinking head flyfisher.

I'll definitely have to compare the SA lines against these. Thanks for the tip, maybe we can even get a couple test lines for members to try.

BTW - do you have an URL with info?

thanks,

Juro

Juro:

I checked their site but cannot find any info about the "Wet Tip Express" lines.

The blurb I've seen come from the Kaufmann, and LL Bean catalogs. I believe the sinking part is about 25' long on these lines. I have to look at the catalogs again to be sure though.

RE:New Sci. Anglers Lines

These lines sound like the Cortland QD line which I use and like very much. However, I must say that I was outfished by a Airflo 400g line this past season. I got one for Christmas and will report on its usefulness. I own an Airflo Clear Intermidate which shoots like a cannon and is a great line.
