Default Feel Good Winter's Over

Nothing remarkable just made me think I've got the greatest cast after winter's rest...last saturday at the fly shop decided to try out all their 12 wts...had my reel(new "bargain" toy old round hole solid frame, QE2 anchor, abel 4.5N in carib camo) and 12wt cortland tropic plus... it's about 35 degrees...started with loomis glx then glx cc then sage Xi then sage Xi2 then winston MX then scott x2s ...they were all great... tip casting 60-70 feet of line... 12"loops...nice and easy hauls...then after the last try...it dawned on me...it wasn't the rod.... it wasn't me.... it was the line... it was really stiff in the cold but it would turnover and shoot and shoot straight... all I had to do was wait on the back cast and stretch the coils out...for a moment I thought my rotator cuff is like new...my youth has returned...until someone remarked that stiff line sure flies what is it?
