Got excited when I saw the 444 peach is a great line, but then heart broken when you said to stay away from their DT. I don't want to sidetrack this thread but is it really horrible? I have always liked RIO then when I asked my shop about Scientific Angler line for my 2wt he suggested the Cortland 444 DT in peach.
