Default Re: In need of a DT5...whats the best?

Back in the UK we were very well served by small producers who sell good quality cheap lines. I used Cortland 333s until these guys got my money. For a dryfly line I would choose a Wildfisher Heron DT but a Barrio is just as good. Don't be fooled by the prices (1.63 dollars to the pound BTW) these are no frills lines but the frills are marketing and packaging.
Check out the links.

Barrio Fly Lines

If there was enough interest I would get some sent over. I should also say at this point I have no financial connection with any of these three guys although I have met them personally.

I do need lines myself as I didn't bring nearly enough tackle over when I moved here (no surprise there eh?) so I intend to get some sent over anyway. If anyone else is interested post here or pm me and I will think it over.
