I bought a new Cortland 555 and I`ve only had it 2 months and the finish is allready shot. The line has a tendancy to blow into the rear of the boat when I`m fishing in the back of the boat and gets down in the bilge. There are spots in the first 50` that feel like sandpaper. I don`t blame Cortland for the condition, but $59 is a lot to only get 2 months use. Aside from that it`s a very good line. When someone gets to braggin about casting the whole line let them try it with this one at 125`.

Slinger - call 'em & send it back.

I had that problem with a #8 & #9 clear 444 int lines 2 years ago.
Cortland had the lies back to me within a week. Got a call from a technician there as well who admitted that there was a problem with that batch of lines. Good guy, good company, great service.

Maybe new lines are like new software? Send it out & let the public test it for you.

Thanks

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions here. I ended up going with the Cortland 444 sl in a 10 weight.

Cheers,

BigD

I took that 555 back to Scott at the Den and he peeled the line off the reel. PARTS OFF THE LINE THAT HAD NEVER BEEN OFF THE SPOOL WERE CRACKED. He said there had to be a flaw in the line and that he would get it replaced, the only problem is that he said it would probably take two weeks to get another line from Cortland. He said that Cortland wouldn`t allow him to just swap it for new line. Two weeks is a long time to be without a line at the peak of the season! Lucky I have my old clear Int. on another reel.
