Hi larry,

I am a creature of habit and perhaps a hack when it comes to deciphering whether one line is better than another. One of my lines is a sky blue Orvis SSS Rocket Taper #5 made by 'who knows', that I bought in 1985 - 86. I really can't tell the difference between that line and a brand new one when I cast them on the same rod...........

With the Spey lines I think getting the belly length and weight right takes much precedence over who made the line. If it doesn't load up the rod properly it just won't work regardless of brand.
