I've been considering Rio Light Touch DT but have heard some think it inferior to the original Selective Trout.

I've heard high praise from the SA Mastery Textured Trout.

I am mainly going to be fishing dries. So I want something that turns over extremely well and lays down like a feather.

I usually like DT on smaller rods, and the SA is a WF, which I can't turn around and re-use, but I wouldn't mind if it is a better line.

Anybody use both? Any advocates for either line or another presentation fly line? What do you think would pair best with this rod?
SA Textured or Sharkskin if you want to spend the extra money. I use SS on a 6'6" Scott F2 3 wt. and a Shelbyville 3 wt 7'6". It works great for me whether roll casting or overhead. On small streams or ponds, I don't think it matters if it's DT or WF. I do have the Rio ST on a 4 wt. spool, but very rarely use it. SS is my go to floating on all my rods.
