Default Re: Sharkskin: Magnum/GPX/Steelhead taper?

I've fished the Magnum a good bit, and yes its pretty great at turning over big stuff.

But with it being a short bellied line, its not going to mend extremely well. The steelhead taper is roughly the same as the XXD/Distance line, and that's as good a line as I know of for mending and roll casting.

For mending at distance, I'd definitely pick the steelhead line.
