RE:Cortland line.

Hi Brian, Dave Boucher uses that line a lot and speaks very highly of it. I would imagine that the floating back end of the head / running line would make it lift from the water and mend in tide currents much easier. I haven't used it myself so will without judgement but it makes a lot of sense and there are many times when I wish the line was not sunk on the back half.

Other times, when I want to hit the bottom without switching spools, the full intermediate seems like an advantage. Any current and that's a pipedream though.

Let us know how you like it!

Teeny / turnaround...

it seems like such a prominent symptom with these sinking head to running line joints. I am stringing up a Rio line (new) to see if they fare better. The Cortland is going back to the factory for replacement this week, I've been dealing with the hinge effect too long now. I hope someone comes up with a reasonable solution!
