This line became the Lazer Tropic Plus which was a serious contender along with the existing SA Mastery Bonefish Taper. There are more specialized lines in this catagory now and I have not tried a brand new version of this Cortland line but the original was a fine and durable product that was a spot on match for certain rods. I am confident that I was not unique in this process wich certainly qualifies as "testing".
I will find out today. I have been told serveral times by two different people and I think I know. I just want to verify with my friends in the business so I do not say anything wrong.
That being said i think the sitting on their rear ends and not doing marketing holds a lot of water too.
