Comments on the Scierra XDA fly line

"Built for extreme distance casting". Sounds pretty good...Has any of you used this fly line? Does it really have a 9,5 meter belly connected to a "long, thin, hard and slick running line"?

Martin -

I am not familiar with that line... do you have a website or more information? I am very curious, it sounds like something I could use provided the joint between the running line and the head does not wear or delaminate.

thanks in advance,
Juro

I know a person who has two friends using the Scierra XDA flyline. They're both quite satisfied with the casting performance of the flyline. I haven't been able to find any objective test of the flyline anywhere on the net, though.

Scierra Outdoor Company describes the XDA like this: "A genius flyline designed for casting farther than any other standard flyline on the market. The Scierra XDA line is built on a braided core with a coating especially formulated for the task. Basically the XDA is a perfectly balanced shooting head with a 9,5 meter belly connected to a long, thin, hard and slick running line giving excellent casting and shooting properties. The XDA is designed for long distance casting - therefore it holds a total length of 35 meter. The shooting head taper is developed for fast loading of the rod without a lot of line aerialised. The XDA is designed for distance casting on large rivers, stillwaters and for saltwater fishing - no matter you use a single or double handed rod."

I just ordered the XDA today, and hopefully I'll have it by the end of the week.

Best regards,

Martin
