If an outfit is balanced well (rod, line, reel) I can cast it...$100 to $1000 its gonna work. mkus was nice enough to share a deal of his preference, if you're a "brand name" user nothing will change your mind. Others may be opened minded to something new, saving cash and experimenting to be satisfied. I'm looking for a inexpensive 10 wgt floater to make a head. This may be worth it to hack it to pieces!

That’s my point thank you if your a good caster you can cast just about any line with any rod heck I’ve broke lines while albie fishing and blood knotted it together kept catching albies ..

I just got my 8wf line for my LMB rod. I can tell no difference between this line and the sa mastery line I just removed. I end up replacing this line every 3 seasons so time will tell how long it last.

I have been using these lines for a few years and they’re great they make 100 ft clear intermediate lines and there is a Canadian company that sells sinking lines which are great also on  eBay...

i’ve  used both all on saltwater species albies Bonita bass blues with great results!

Very interesting 

how did you find out about them?

 

i looked myself and noticed a bunch of stuff but mostly to 8 wt and not much sinking line 

 

do they have a web site where the full range of offerings is listed out?

I received my line in just a few days. The mailing label says U.S. Post Office. The company probably has a warehouse in this country.

How's the grain weight on these lines?  I mean on an WF8 you can go from 210 gr to 330gr .... big difference.

 

Are they closer the standard or a bit heavier?

I knew it would be too good to be true 

 

I sent the same question to Aventi and the Canadian seller 

 

Q. do you have 9 to 10 weight ?

 

A. the Chinese  company said yes we have 8 weight

 

canada never responded 

 

i guess if i place an order I should be happy with whatever they send

I know witht he Maxcatch and Anlers Dream lines (of which I now have 8), they have varing tapers and weight specs just like the big companies. Some lines are right on spec weight, Some 1/2 size heavy. Sometimes it takes some digging to find which is which. They have all been good lines though.

got mine in the mail, took about a month, came straight from China, two lines for $11.97.  The floater is only 85 ft long, cant test cast them since I do not own an 8wt or 9wt.  I'm all screwed up right now, 5 fly reels, 1 fly rod, lol,
