Default Re: Airflo's Sixth Sense

I tried a 5/6 last year, and it felt a bit heavy on 5wts (SLT & Z-Axis), butt was the cats south side on my 690-4 SLT. I was using it in pretty unfavorable winds on a large lake and it performed very well. I have a spool of 4/5 to load up and try on the 5wt SLT and 4wt BIIx.

One word of caution... when they say 'no stretch', just go along with it... and if you must try stretching it, don't do it after a long drive and a few beers unless you have a better back up plan than I did last Oct....
